Well, since I am the impatient type, I just jumped into it. Glad I did; the belt had some pretty scary cracks, one almost going to the outside.
I had to order the belt from our local RV dealer and it will take a few days to get here. He was pretty surprised I was able to remove the back cover without removing the generator from the coach. It was not easy and it will be interesting to put back together. He suggested I examine the plastic tank for signs of cracking. He suggested that would be on the order of a $1500 bill if it cracked, since coolant would go right into the electronics.
