During the trip the rudder pedal steering and some deicing equipment had been written up in the aircraft log and signed off as ok. On the trip the rudder steering had come off line once and was reset with no problems. Also the wing boots did not come on immediately and performed satisfactorily for the duration of the work day when the switch was recycled 1 time. Recycling of the switch occurred only 1 time during the duty day. A note was placed on the control column of the aircraft as a courtesy to the next crew to simply watch for these things. This note was picked up by the FAA after I had left the airplane.
