I have a new Fleetwood Fiesta with the P32 Chassis. From day one this engine has had a sqeeking problem. One service center replaced the drive belt at 180 Mi and the belt and tensioner at 360 Mi. Another Center replaced the belt and tensioner at 1300 mi. Now the problem has returned at 3100 Mi. Workhorse said this is a normal condition because the squeek goes away after the engine gets hot. Any comments out there?

Tensioners and water pumps are generally the noise makers. Although sometimes the alternator will make a noise. You leaking any antifreeze? s/Toby

I had one heck of a noise under my doghouse it more than squeaked (it started that way) but then started to squeal. It was the alternator. As these chassis sit out sometimes for a great length of time before they get a coach on them the are exposed to the elements unless really taken care of. After the chassis dealer replaced my alternator I nad no more noise at all.

First of all, let me welcome you to iRV2. You will find lots of great people here and lots of great info.
I had your same problem on my Ford chassis at the beginning. They replaced two fan belts and a belt tensioner. It would fix the problem for a short term and then it would come back. Finally figured out that for some reason, the OEM belt was just a tad to long and would make the noise after a short time. They replaced it with a AC Delco belt that was just a tad shorter and havent had the problem since.

Thanks for the replys. It did give me some ideas on where to look. No there is no cooling leak toby. Yosemiti, the service center told me that they looked into a possible alternator bearing problem as well as all the other accesories. They also told me that other owners were having the same problems but Workhorse claims there is no problem because the noise goes away after a few miles. Anybody know anything about California's lemon law?
