SOURCE: the serpentine belt keeps coming
I had that problem with my 1999 Voyager. Gates Rubber co. has a modification kit with a new belt and main pulley. They put ribs sort of on both sides of the belt and it grips very good if I run through a
water puddle This mod came out in about March of 2007

I have had the same trouble with my 2002 zx2. I have had to reinstall or replace the serpentine belt 4 or 5 times in less than a year. I have replaced the idler bearing and then the water pump went out which took out the belt as well. The belt still came off after replacing those items when I hit another puddle of water. I found that proper installation of the plastic engine splash guards which bolt to the bottom around the motor play an important roll in keeping out road water. Since the pulleys are accessible with the right front tire removed, I focused on securing the plastics tightly around the wheelwell framework. This has helped extremely in keeping water away from the pulleys. I haven't had any more troubles in the last 7 or 8 months. I'm still leary when driving in the rain as the routing of the serpentine belt on this car is the worst I've ever encountered.
Bottom line, check/replace idler bearing, tensioner if needed and make sure all plastic splash guards are there and properly screwed to the frame and each other.
Hope this helps.

check #1 engine main pulley is all the way in and tight
#2 belt align? ok , no , check carefully the serpintin is centered in all pulleys, and do not miss the water pump pulley, runs on the inside the bold and outer surface of belt (serpertine), there is a drawing at the engine bay

Check pulleys for being out of line. Chances are high that it is the tensioner pulley. Take the belt off and check for play in all of the pulleys. If the pulley rocks on its shaft the bearing is bad.

I had the same problem with my 98 voyager that I bought used a year ago, my mechanic suggested to replace the serpentine belt due to visible wear, three days later, it fall off again, this time the mechanic, suggested replacing the belt tensioner, that fixed the problem for good.
