My name is XXXXX XXXXX i will try and help. I have had issues with the less expensive belts and now almost only use Goodyear Gatorback belts they are more money but I have had good luck with them. Also do a detailed inspection of the belt alignment and check all the pulleys for bad bearings or a bad belt tensioner. Especially the tensioner as it can appear to be ok yet still be weak and allow the belt to slip.
