Serpentine belt

Do any of you know the correct number for a 2011 Berkshire 390-60 with a Cummins 6.7?
We are stranded in Lordsburg,Az with a broken belt. Our A/C compressor clutch froze and sheared the belt.

No guarantees, but a quick Google search brought up Cummins part #3974248. I would recommend calling Cummins Care at 1-800-343-7357 just to make sure. Sorry you are having troubles and best of luck getting back on the road.

That has happened to many of us, ours last fall. Hope you find the correct belt and on your way shortly.

Sub and No putt,
Thanks for the reply. I have a mechanic coming this AM, to see if we can short belt and bypass the A/C compressor. The Napa store 60 miles away has a Gates belt for the original length. I may have to drive the Toad to get one if we can find a Compressor.
Road side assistance (Good Sam) could not find any one tow the RV yesterday.

Sorry for your breakdown. The concern of Roadside Assistance is a concern I have. Good Sam can not tow you? That should be part of what you pay for.

Coach-net sent a tow truck from about 50 miles away when our belt broke in the middle of KS. Your right along a major interstate and trucks break down all the time out there, don't think good sam looked very hard to find you a tow.

That is the main reason we got rid of Good Sam and Allstate they want your money but when you need them to perform they can't or don't

From the Freightliner class, they suggested carrying a serpentine belt, fuel filter and water separator. (which I do). Probably most roadside service will not have the belt, but by having your own, some of the services might be able to install it, without having a big tow job.
