Roger D. and Onna Lee Ford, who have been married since 1978, apply their Christian beliefs to their business practices by offering quality service at a fair rate. The company began work in 1984. Along with the extensive RV refrigerator reconditioning the offer, they also provide global licensed training in the field of absorption refrigerator cooling unit reconditioning.

1990 - began advocating Going Green with RV refrigerators and began training refrigerator repair and cooling unit reconditioning to others throughout the USA and other countries, in an attempt to make this service available to all RV owners.

1994- Wrote the first and only RV absorption refrigerator reconditioning manual available. This manual is used in their training today.

November 2005 - their business, home, vehicles, and all belongings were totally destroyed by a tornado with over 200 mph winds. In May 2006, they reopened their doors, were awarded Business of the Month by the Chamber of Commerce, became members of the Recreational Vehicle Dealers Association, and increased their training to involve certification.

In 2007, they added to their Go Green efforts in order to keep repairable RV refrigerators out of the landfills nationwide, by developing the RVRN Association. This Association networks those who have received Ford RV's certification training. They also became members of the Better Business Bureau Association, and became Certified Kentucky State inspectors. Over the years, their customers have voiced the need for a manual that would enable them to do minor fixings themselves, or at the very least, give them enough education to know whether or not a service tech had been properly educated.

So in 2009, they published the 241-paged book, Average Joe's RV Refrigerator Troubleshooting & Repair Guide. This first of its kind manual, also supports the Going Green movement. From 2003 to 2009, editors from many technical magazines engaged the Fords to write articles for their magazines and websites.

In 2014, Ford's RV became a Kentucky State Licensed Proprietary School.
