1976 Winnebago Itacasa - Ughh.. At slower speeds, motorhome

Customer Question

1976 Winnebago Itacasa - Ughh.. At slower speeds, motorhome seems to hesitate, or had at times, just stopped. Once we purchased it, we has a tuneup done, replaced battery, windshield wipers, new distributor system (cap & seal) and changed both fuel systems.
Drove great for a week, but its doing it again. Any way you could suggest anything?

Hi, my name is ***** ***** you for your question.
sorry for delay.
I have some questions to help determine the cause the more info you can give me the better and quicker we can find out what is wrong.
What size engine and make?
When you say (new distributor system (cap & seal)) do you mean just cap and rotor? Or entire distributer?
where wires replaced with tune up?
Any exhaust leaks?
Any pinging under acceleration?
Does it bog down as you give it gas?
If you accelerate slowly does it still act up?
Does it idle high/low/rough,smooth?
Was timing set?
Does it run worse at idle with brake pedal pushed down or in gear?
Let me know

Hi Spanky. Thank you for your reply. I can answer some of the questions now and will get back to you as soon as I know for the others.The entire distributor was changed as well as plugs and wires. It has a Chevy 350 in it. I will give it a test run tomorrow and address the remaining questions. Thanks again for your help.
