Default kubota 8 k Onan Fan Belt

Has anyone recorded the Fan Belt # for the 8 k Onan? First tossed fan belt today as we entered the Dewayne Hayes COE Campground. Need to fix that puppy before we leave here.

Sorry Rick,

I only have the Onan #185-2275, but is is just a V belt nothing special.
Check that little alternator for free wheeling. It has two or three bearings easily replaced.
Gideon's smoked a few years ago.

The NAPA/Gates number is 3L360W. This is the green stripe belt. Good luck Rick.

Thanks Chief. I knew someone would save me a few $ over Onan prices. I don't have the big bucks like Bill.

Rick, try this NAPA belt if you have a NAPA store nearby.

Alt: Belt-----------------Napa- 7385
The Sp 36 Handbook (Vagabond) has all belts listed somewhere.

http://www.wanderlodgeownersgroup.co...36%20HANDBOOK/

I believe I went 1 size smaller since I was running out of adjustment.

Check your bearings on the Alternator... mine siezed up and I rebuilt the unit and still carry it as a spare.

If I can't get it at NAPA there is Onan service and parts at the RV joint in town.

Rick, I'll call your cell phone about 7:00 AM with updated information on the ONAN Belt. My Blue Box has receipts showing where the Previous Owner replaced that belt (3 belts in less than a year). The water pump had also been replaced when I bought the coach...turns out the belt had been slipping not because of a faulty water pump, but 2 of the 3 the ball bearings in the alternator seized up. The alternator seized and smoked the belt while dry camping at Oshkosh AirVenture 2007 (Stephen Birtles was the person who asked me, Dick, does your alternator always smoke like that?

I purchased a new alternator at a Kubota tractor dealer in Dale, Wi. and changed the bearings in my old alternator for about $15.00. I carry the original as a spare.

I'll call you in a few minutes with the NAPA part number for the belt currently installed on my DKD ONAN...need to get my shoes on and drive up the hill to the FC.
