Stinky Faucet Water 
On our recent trip to Florida, the water that came out of our faucet stinked, like rotten eggs. We've never had any problems like this before. Can anyone help on what's the problem here?

Re: Stinky Faucet Water 
There are two causes: if you filled it up with ground water, that could be one reason why you're getting the sulphur-smelling water in your water. The other reason could be a problem in your water heating system. Either way, the best thing that you can do is to get a professional to clean up your RVs water and heating system so that you can get rid of the smell. After that, make sure that you use an activated carbon filter in your faucets to prevent it from happening in the future.

Rotten egg smell, this comes from sulfer water. Sounds like to added or filled your tank with sulfer water. It won't hurt you but drain your water, add a little bleach and flush the system.

Use a carbon filter. That might help with it.
