If it is similar to my father's 1976 Chevy van with the 350ci engine, it won't be fun. Plan on having Band-Aids in your medicine cabinet.

Mine were a piece of cake !
Just grabbed 4 wires, 4 plugs, a set of channel locks, a plug wrench and some silicone spray, and crawled under the coach, leaned up against the tire and went to work.
Each side took about 30 minutes, and drank a beer at half time..........

PS; I used the "UltraRV" plugs and wires. The OEM sets are junk.

So.. if you have not done these before.. go to nearest auto parts store and grab a basic automotive repair book for 1998 chevy c2500.. .. think of you rv as Chevy light duty pickup truck bolted to big frame with house on it.. because that is what it is.. they use same light duty eng and trans.. so repair book has pictures and specs and tips.. that you will need..
Good luck and let us know what you did and maybe better members then me will help you

TIP: Especially for the Novice, easiest, best, fastest, without mistake, is ONE AT A TIME. OH, AND GET A SMALL INCH-POUND TORQU WRENCH SO YOU DO NOT BREAK/ STRIP ANYTHING WHEN REINSTALLING
