Winter Projects

Ah yes...that dreaded time has arrived (about a month ago) to us in the midwest and northern areas. I winterized at the end of October and since i think there have been at least 4 weekends that we could have gotten out because the weather has been so nice. I know there are some warriors out there but we have shut things down for the season.
This brings up off season mods and repairs. Any one have anything good planed or an overlooked maintenance item they want to suggest?
So far on my list:

*Check and re seal clearance lights-no current issue but why not
*New Stinger for the equalizer hitch so that i can open tailgate without hitting power jack.
*Service all wheel bearings
*Replace lexan on screen door (Mod i did in 2011) as it has gotten scratched up pretty good.
* replace slider on screen door with the new LCI opener found on new units
