Byerly RV Center imageRuss Patton of Byerly RV in Eureka, Mo., has donated an additional $10,000 to the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) Education Foundation’s RV Learning Center, bringing his total contribution to more than $15,000, according to a news release.

“The RV Learning Center is providing quality assistance during tough times,” said Patton. “In the 1980s, this information was not available and dealers were on their own to find information. Now, a visit to the RV Learning Center website shows how we have matured and how much support dealers have when we act as a group. This is a good time for dealers to assess our operations, and I am pleased to make an investment in the continued success of the RV industry and RV retailers.”

“Russ Patton has a track record of supporting professional development and education at his dealership and within the industry,” said Rick Horsey of Parkview RV Center in Smyrna, Del., and Education Foundation chairman. “We appreciate his financial support and his employees’ participation in RV Learning Center programs.”

The RV Learning Center is dedicated to providing dealers and their employees with innovative ways to operate RV dealerships through an array of education resources including publications, distance learning, live workshops, online products, training, and certification programs for RV dealership personnel.
