What's on your RV spring To-Do list?

As I am sitting in a hotel room in Coffeyville Kansas for work 350 miles from home I am making a list of things that I need to do in March to get ready for the season. What's on your list? Here is mine:

-Replace the fire extinguisher used last year during my hub fire
-Find one of those fancy screen door openers instead of the slider on mine
-figure out a better way of attaching my lexan panels to the screen door
-build a anti roll off rail for the top bunk for my kids
-add a few led lights in the front storage compartment
- replace all batteries in smoke/co detectors
-re paint my dual battery tray
-permanently mount my dis connect switch
-replace worn snap up brackets on my centerline hitch (for my peace of mind)
-sanitize fresh water tank and jeep canteens
-replace crappy rivets on stairs with SS hardware
-reduce weight and eliminate anything not used last season(easier said than done)
-wash and wax and inspect roof/sealant
-pull out the top awning mount and re-enforce with liquid nails the connection after our "awing incident" last year
-scrub and de mould awing

Let's see how much I actually get done as our first trip is scheduled for the last week in March.

On mine:
Awning (middle) support bracket.
40" tv, the 32" it's too small!
Adding support for the big party sofa, it's sagging in the middle.
Will love to add the bike rack.
Air bags for the Tundra.
Full wax detail. (not by me) $$$
Magic Mesh hands free screen door.
Bumper lights.

And now I don't even want to think about the summer list!

Install two more batteries and three way switch.

Install inverter in bedroom.

Organize utility storage pocket up front. I want to put hoses, cables, etc into their own tubs for easy access.

Organize basement in a similar fashion.

Organizer in the pantry. Really, I'm not a neat freak by a long shot, but with it being nice and new I want to keep it that way.

Last item on my to do lost is ten nights camping before summer!

Check battery level
Clean roof & slide roofs
Check all seams and caulking
Wash/wax unit
Wash windows inside & out (I hate this job)
Check tire pressure
Check for level, check wheel chocks (On a seasonal site so I check this spring & fall)
Blow out water lines, bleach water hose
Check all LP appliances to make sure they still operate as intended
Check for any mice infestation (None yet, knock wood)
Check AC operation (don't want any surprises when it gets hot, if that ever happens)
