Water with sulfates or sulfides with iron in water will smell after 20 days or so. Here in Texas I pull the low point drains, drain the fresh water tank and water heater after every trip. Our water comes out of the Edwards Aquifer but the village strains out the Texas blind salamanders, but it will still stink if left sitting (It is a local joke).
