Date of Service:
Work Done on:
Class A - Diesel
Replace drive belt on diesel pusher with a Cummins ISL 400 engine.
Evaluation of Service Performed:
While inspecting my radiator (rear facing), I observed what appeared to be a piece of wire or rope wedged between the top of the radiator and the cowling.
When I removed it, I found it to be part of the drive belt (4 feet long x .125 inches in width). I was in a campground and did not want to get back on the
road without replacing the belt. I called Nations, a local towing service who said they could make the repairs. I gave them the Cummins belt number.
They brought a Continental belt which they apparently cross referenced to the Cummins belt, and changed out the belts in about an hour. The Continental
belt did not look like the Cummins, but it was the same length with the same number of tracks and fit snugly on the pulleys. It is apparently was ok since I
put 400 miles on it today with no problem.
The reason that I gave them a Good on the value of service was the cost of the belt. I was charged $100 for it and subsequently found it on Amazon for
$18.59. Other than that I was thankful that I found someone who could come out and make the repairs the same day. The lesson learned is that I will be
carrying a spare belt from now on. Still do not know why the original belt shredded though.
