From SF to South Lake Tahoe you'd head east on 80 which turns into 50 when you get to West Sacramento. You won't have to do anything but stay out of the extreme right lanes that break off to go to Reno. Then you'd take 50 all the way to SLT.

May is shoulder season. It could be quite pleasent during the day and cold at night or it could snow. Just really hard to predict.

I would choose Zephyr Cove. Very close to the lake.

Echo Summit for first-time RV'ers driving on the "wrong side"?

I pity the person in the passenger seat, and the traffic behind them.

Not really going to be alot of traffic on a Wednesday in May. It's only a few miles, maybe those behind can take some time to enjoy the view.

What else should they do? Drive 80 and then areound the lake for many many miles holding up the people on that 2 lane road?
