Jerry,
Do you mean to tell me you have had a confirmed sighting of 2air??? Folks have been looking for him for quite a while.

If this is in fact true, you may want to post your sighting here...

My "sighting" was in the form of a private message advising how to solve the "stinky tank" problem. I've also encouraged 2air to jump back into the pool, but I respect his right to "dial it back". I was just glad to hear from him.

Jerry,
It is just enough to see that he is still counted amongst the living.

I'm sure 2air is lurking at the forums under assumed identities. I wouldn't doubt that he is out there camping under an assumed SOB.

Cleaning, sanitizing, will be a temp. solution.
OK - We just went out this weekend in our '38 Sovereign and had the same strong "rotten egg smell" from our hot water. I drained the water tank last night and did not find an anode - our Atwood is propane only. Do the propane only tanks not have an anode? We'll try the cleansing part - but any advice on where/if our water heater has an anode would be appreciated. From the looks of the unit, it appears to be original. Thanks! John

Alsupp,
Both our Airstreams have Atwoods, the '87 has a prpane only and hte '06 has an electric / propane unit an neither of them have an annode rod. So yours, most likely, will not have one either.

The anode will be attached to your drain plug. New rods can be purchased at most RV supply stores.

I agree with the comments about the battery. We were parked for several days smelling the egg smell, which was, come to find out the hydrogen sulfide odor released by over charging batteries. They actually were quite hot to the touch when I chased down the smell. Caught them in time. I have heard some awful stories about fires in trailers and I often wonder if the cause is from an overheated battery.
