Coach-Net., a leading provider of out-sourced customer service programs for RV dealers, has pledged $125,000 over five years to the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) Education Foundation, making it the Foundation’s largest corporate contributor.

“This record-setting pledge to the Foundation shows that Coach-Net is a company that is committed to RV dealers,” said Rick Horsey, owner of Parkview RV Center, Smyrna, Del., and chairman of the Foundation.

“The Foundation will use this contribution to advance its mission of professionalizing RV dealership employees so that this great industry can continue to prosper,” Horsey said.

Coach-Net President and CEO Jerry Aldridge agreed to make the contribution because he believes “we are in an age in which life long learning is mandatory. We are very proud to support such a professional organization that focuses so intently on dealer education. I strongly encourage other suppliers to help us meet this challenge with their time, talent and financial assistance.”

Based in Lake Havasu City, Ariz., Coach-Net contracts with dealers to handle customer assistance calls seven days a week, 24 hours a day. The 15-year-old company employs industry certified technicians to help RV travelers schedule service and trouble-shoot problems.

The RVDA Education Foundation is the educational arm of the RVDA. It is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, which means donations to the Foundation may be tax deductible as charitable contributions.
