berkshire Eng.belts

How is the best way to access eng. fan and alternator drive belt on 2015 Brerkshire B H 360. My coach sounds like there may be a belt slipping on the alternator and there is a low voltage message on the eng monitor.
Thank you

From under the Moho. Wiggle in and around everything and you should be able to stand up in there. Not sure I would do it when the motor is running.

Take it to a Freightliner or Cummins shop. You are still under warranty.

Do you get the low voltage warning at first start up? This is normal if you do. We pretty much all get that warning because of the engine heater.

What kind of noise are you hearing?

If you watch your amp gauge, you will see it fluctuate until the engine warms. If you want to eliminate the low voltage message, plug your block heater in for about 20 minutes before you start the engine. That should take care of your low voltage message

I am not trying to be smart but my tip would be to have it done for you. The only way I would attempt the belt is if I were stuck on the road and could not get anyone to come out. Just no room to work.

Yeah- I got under the coach and saw it was tight. There has to be a way to do it. I have close to 50,000 miles on mine and was going to change it so I don't have to worry on long trips this summer.

Our belt broke as we were going across KS this fall. Just under 50,000 miles, belt was in good condition, but AC froze up and belt broke. If anything else, get a spare belt and carry with since the cumins dealer had to order the new belt.
