Steve Anderson, editor of Workamper News, termed last week’s launch of the RV maintenance 10-month program called the Gold Star Club “a huge success.”
The program opened with an online live event on Feb. 4 called “Buying & Selling It Right,” hosted by Terry Cooper of Mobile RV Academy. Cooper’s expert guests were two guests from PPL Motor Homes in Houston, Texas, Rob Henderson, director of marketing and sales, and James “Shorty” Eleckel, sales manager. PPL Motor Homes is considered the largest RV consignment dealer in the U.S., selling between 1,200 and 1,300 consigned RVs each year, according to a news release.
“One of the many bonus features of being a member of the Gold Star Club is having the opportunity to sit in on an online ‘Live Event’ each month to obtain valuable information about certain RV related topics,” Cooper said. “What better way to start out a large program like this than by teaching people how to buy and sell an RV and do it right? We want to show people that they can sidestep the pitfalls that are out there if they just take the time to become educated about how it all works.”
During the 10-month program, members will be learning RV maintenance via online webinars that have been recorded and placed in a library for each member to access at their own pace. Cooper will be providing his “Ask the Professor” Internet show as a way to provide one-on-one interaction to provide more in-depth learning.
Anderson wants to encourage those who are interested in the program to go ahead and sign up.
“Even though we have had the ‘official opening’ of the Gold Star Club, anyone can still sign up for this outstanding program,” he said. “We have purposely designed it for anyone who wants to become educated about RV Maintenance to enter at any time and have full advantage of all that the program has to offer.”

Workamper News and Workamper University have partnered with Terry Cooper, the “Texas RV Professor,” and his Mobile RV Academy to provide two online courses for people interested in learning more about RVs. The courses will be entirely online using a web seminar system where attendees will be able to interact with the instructor, Cooper. The two courses begin this month.
According to a news release, the first course, titled “Your RV Electrical Systems,” will begin on July 14. Each course has three sections available to participants; each section is made up of four sessions totaling six hours of class time.The second course offered is “Becoming a Certified RV Walk Through Technician.” To participate in either or both of these classes people will need to register and submit their payment through the Workamper News Store online. There are three different packages available starting at $247 per course. Visit http://www.workamper.com/rvprofessor to find all the details about the course fees.
Cooper will present the course using PowerPoint presentations and video. Homework assignments and pre- and post-course assessments will be provided along with downloadable handouts and video link materials.
The “RV Electrical Systems” course is designed for the individual that wants to not only save money, but develop new skills that can be used while Workamping. Some of the topics covered will be electricity, DC voltage, AC voltage and electrical capstone materials. In the “Becoming a Certified RV Walk Through Technician” course, students will receive a certificate upon successful completion.
