A tire pump. Good odds the tires have lost most if not all of their air if it's been stored for a long time. Also have the name of one or two tire stores nearby in case the tires have dry rotted or have tread separation.

Emergency running lights just in case... or an auto parts store that stocks them.

A credit or debit card because no matter what you bring, something else might be needed - like the right size hitch ball or a hacksaw to cut off the hitch's padlock that's missing the key!

Be flexible! Good Luck, Paula

Tow mirrors. Remember to call the insurance company and put collision back on the AS (if you took if off during storage). Key to the storage shed. Keys to the AS (I did forget them once). And your departure checklist. My screw ups seem to happen at the beginning of the season, like forgetting to check that the windows are closed. So I try to follow the checklist particularly closely the first few trips out, since I am out of practice and haven't seen the AS since November.

Great that you're taking the AS out so early! I will likely take mine out around May 1. That will seem like forever.

Make sure the trailer brakes work when you start to move... not after you are on the road...

A torque wrench to check lug nuts. Grease for hitch ball.
The suggestions here are helpful. We head out in two days for our spring shakedown in Sequim WA - can't wait!
