My first car was a 77 Lincoln with v-belts 460 cid with a c6 trans. So that's the only thing I can pull from to help out. Both drivers side loops will go over the water pump/ fan pulley, from there they go differently. One goes up and over the power steering pulley and then back down to the crank. The other goes to the a/c and then down to the crank. Now you might also have a 3rd belt that goes only from the crank to the passenger side down low, this would be for the alternator. Now mine also had a 4th for the air pump and that was driven off of the water pump only.

I hope this helps, I know it's not on a motorhome. But the engine might match.

I'm trying to figure out how I can put the 2 pulleys onto it because the single pulley is not strong enough on its own there is supposed to be another pulley that goes around the power steering and something else . I'm trying to find a diagram and or belt number to figure out what i need to buy so it works better.

V Belts have two values that make up their part number

The width of the belt and the length of the belt.. If you are lucky you will find the number on the belt.. If not a tape measure can get you the length and width. Measure the top of the belt (Wide side) And measure in the store to insure you get the right size.

For the length, take a lenght of plastic tubing (Say quarter inch) and route it along the path, Cut it and measure it, You may need to add 1-2 inches to get to a standard belt length.

Fact: I had a ford car with V-Belts.. The specified belt in the manual.. WAS WRONG.
