Congrats on one cool RV!
My only suggestion is based on previous experience with 454 powered RV's - spring for a set of plug wires made for high performance race cars, specifically with the highest temp boots you can find. I went several years with 2 sets of NAPA lifetime replacement wires, one set on the RV melting and one set as a spare. Every 6 months I'd swap sets when the misfires started and get the toasted set swapped under warranty.

I finally got tired of the shuffle and bought a set from Summit Racing and never again burned a set of wires.

These are all very good suggestions. I'm up to 16 on the list of things to have the mechanic check and change.

I haven't bought ignition wires in a long time since the newer ones really last, but when I used to, I found the NAPA house brand of electrical parts was inferior. I think the name was Belkin, but it's been a while—20+ years.
