Got an update for y'all. So Airstream had it for a week or two and concluded that there was no leak. What caused the smell? They couldn't tell me but they did say they did a pressure test on the propane lines and that there was zero drop in the pressure. Went to go pick it up and they were right, the smell had somehow vanished without any conclusive answer as to what was causing that smell. Kept it parked for a few weeks and didn't notice the smell any more, not even a trace. Used it recently and all was normal. As to what it was? I guess we'll never know! My initial problem tank just ran out of propane (after our last trip and all the testing since) so I'll fill it up again and see if the smell returns. Odd, yes, absolutely, but I'm glad it seems to have been corrected.

Hi, in close to 15 years, my trailer only had a propane smell in it once. It ended up being a container of chopped onions in the refrigerator.

Our only 'LP' smell was the lingering bouquet of the boiling cabbage in a St. Patricks Day meal.
Lesson, no cabbage cooking in the AS...ever.🤧
That lesson may in time be overruled by SWMBO, maiden name, Burke.
