    Hi Ronnie

    My name is Gene Hyland and at heart am a Menomonee Falls-ite. 🙂

    A few months shy of fifty-two years ago at a manufacture’s meeting and showing of its new models and being it one of its larger dealer, a large Florida dealer came up to me and asked what I was doing about warranty and parts problem. Before starting to reply, he saw a another sizable dealer from Michigan and called him over. Little did we realize that gathering of the three of us was the founding of the RVDA.

    Obviously, the subject was parts an warranty. A couple of years later and meetings I was railroaded (elected) president of an unknown RV dealers association.

    Its foremost purpose of organizing was the famous term; parts and warranty.

    I close the dealership in the mid 70’s due to the so called gas shortage.

    And here we are now taking another start at resolving the parts and warranty problem issues.

    If you follow the unpopular footprints of Greg, Your heading on the right track.

    A few things I suggest should be known before getting underway. I’ll just head them off to see what your interest will be. Because of all of the preliminary work in bring the RVDA into being and continually seeing the same old fodder being chewed over and over, my heart is in it deeper that ever.

    Here are a few subjects needing to be considered.

    The preliminary goals and work invested before opening its office in Chicago.
    The RVDA mover to Colorado
    The bring back of “Humpty Dumpty.
    The gross scamming of theRVDA
    The birth of RVDA’s “Good Ole Boys Club”
    The broken structure RVDA that is defended as correct to preserve a few inside jobs.
    The refusal of a professional RV sales study
    Proves answers casted aside to questions asked in the RV dealers magazine
    Etc. etc.

    Look forward to hearing from you. Sorry, no time left today for proffing 🙂
