Where to dump tanks and get LP gas near Truckee?

You’ve had a ludicrous adventure and now you need to dump your tanks and fill the LP (propane) gas before returning. We’ve got you covered no matter what direction you are returning to Truckee from. First think you need to know is this website: SaniDumps: RV Dump Station Directory. Where ever you are at, this website will have all the details you need to dump the RV tanks.

We personally use the two locations listed below the most, as they are in Truckee. The easiest is the Chevron Gas Station located right off of I-80. The dump station is easy to get to and they have LP available too.

Chevron Gas Station
12353 Deerfield Dr, Truckee, CA 96161
Open mid May through mid October
$12.00 or $8.00 with fuel fill up

The dump station is on the left of the store, and the LP gas is right behind (see picture below). We recommend getting gas first, then dump the tanks and fill LP (ask an attendant inside to help with the LP).

Another Truckee option is Coachland RV Park. You’ll need to stop at the front desk and pay before pulling through to their dump station. LP (propane) is also available, ask nicely for a fill and they’ll help you out.
