95 Fleetwood Bounder with 454 Engine and Chevy P30 Chassis. I am having a problem getting the AC belt to stay on. The AC belt was missing when I bought the motor home. However there was a spare 60" belt sitting in the motorhome so I assumed it was the correct one for the AC compressor/power steering/water pump/crank route. I got a new one from NAPA the NBH 257603 and installed it on the first groove of the AC compressor, the second groove of the power steering and the only groove on the water pump and the second groove on the crank. The AC worked but seemed weak. However when the compressor would kick on I would hear a squeak from the belt. I tightened it, but in short order it was worn out and I cut it off before it could fly off and do any damage. I have been looking online for the proper belts for this MH and also the proper routing of the belts. Just looking at it with my eye, it seems that the pulley grooves between the AC compressor and the power steering pump don't line up properly if you try to run the AC compressor inner groove with the power steering pump second groove. However the outer groove on the AC compressor and the outer groove on the power steering pump seem to line up. If you can help me figure this out and get my AC belt functioning properly I would very grateful.
