Well, it was bound to happen. Bought our 1989 32' Georgie Boy Cruise Master this spring. Chevy 454 4-bbl Did a near 2000 mile trip in July to Canada, New York City and back without a hitch. Did a 500 mile round trip early this fall without a hitch, except for a fuel filter (no big deal). Replaced a rubber piece of fule line that was getting sucked flat with an alumunum piece. Left Christmas eve from Columbia, MO for a trip to St Louis, Mo to pick up one son, daughter-in-law and 7 month old grandson at the airport and head to Indianapollis, IN. Made it 17 miles from the airport and threw the main belt (water pump and alternator). Pulled off the interstate and into a K-Mart parking lot. It is a WIDE ribbed belt. Half of the belt had broken and split loose and was thumping around and it threw it off of the pullies. We had a chase vehicle (another son that had to come back early from the trip) so we made it to the airport for the pick-up. Spent about an hour and a half calling and trying to get the belt to no avail. Decided to head back home, rather than go on with the trip. Went back the to RV to lock it down so we could come back to get it AFTER Christmas. I decided to rip the belt the rest of the way in half and try to use the "good" piece that was left. I installed it in the middle of the pullies and fired up the engine. Everything looked good. Put the dog house back on, closed up everything and headed for home. Figured we would get as far as we could, park it and come back for it. Ended up making it the 80 miles back home without incident. Had a great Christmas morning and am heading out first thing tomorrow (Wednesday) morning for a new belt. We are off to Indy again Wednesday afternoon. Gotta love it!
