Default Serpentine Belt

A friend of mine asked me to ask you folks this question.

He has a 2002 Ranger Edge regular cab with the 3.0 and 125000 plus miles. He got the truck about eight months ago and when he checked it out it needed a new serpentine belt which the dealership installed a new one. Now his serpentine belt belt is fraying at the front edge of the belt towards the radiato. We both have check the pulleys with the engine running and don't see anything that the belt can rub on to cause this wear.

Any ideas what would cause the front edge of the belt to wear prematurely?

Worn out tensioner with weak spring assy. Also look for a nicked pulley edge
