Default New serpentine belt already?

2003 Dream Cruiser with 3500 miles on it started squealing on me yesterday. In the shop today and they say she needs a new belt. It seems a bit early for that. Has anyone else had to replace theirs this early?

I had mine replaced after 11,000 miles and the dealer covered it under warranty. They also replaced the power steering belt and I found out there was a service bulletin that required some kind of adjustment on the power steering assembly for proper alignment.
