PASO ROBLES — Delta Liquid Energy announces the retirement of long-time Delta RV Department Manager Rick Pedersen. Pedersen has been a part of the Delta Liquid Energy family for more than 30 years, and his last day on the job will be Tuesday, Dec. 31. He started his career with Delta RV, a recreational vehicle parts and service store, as a service technician for the Paso Robles location in September 1989. Five years later, he was promoted to his current position as Delta RV Department Manager.  

“It’s been a very fulfilling, worthwhile career for me,” Pedersen said of his time with Delta RV. “I love helping people enjoy their RV experience and solving problems.” He said that over the years, he’s made friends with many of his customers and enjoys hearing about their favorite places to travel. He looks forward to visiting those places during his retirement years. The Black Hills of South Dakota and the Pacific Northwest are both at the top of the list. 

Vice President of Business Enterprises for Delta Liquid Energy Robert Jacobs said that it has been a “distinct pleasure to work with Rick Pedersen for more than 28 years. He has not only been a tremendous asset to Delta RV, but a good friend as well. His interaction with the customers is a large part of the excellent reputation for service Delta RV has enjoyed for more than thirty years. I wish only the best for Rick as he embarks on his well-deserved retirement.”


Although it is difficult to say “see you later” to such an integral part of the Delta RV team, the store will remain in good hands as managerial roles are turned over to 13-year Delta RV veteran, Kari Dulitz. She’s been working alongside Pedersen for many years and is ready to take on the new role. Pedersen said he will miss his coworkers and his customers the most and that he’s “very grateful to the Platz family for having me for 30 years.” Delta RV and Delta Liquid Energy encourage customers from the local community to stop by their location in the coming weeks to wish Pedersen a fond farewell.
