Just did this mod and it turned out great, thanks for the pictures and the rundown of how you did it. I will paint it next spring/summer getting ready to head south in a few weeks and this mod helps and frees up a ton of storage space :<))

Tried to install the fence post sewer storage mod today (at the storage site), after painting it yesterday, but found that there's a gas line in the way, so I'll have to re-make the brackets deeper by 3/4 inch, in order to clear the gas line, and then bolt the fence post to the bracket also.
I've drilled the 5/16" holes for mounting (i'm using 5/16 hex bolts) etc, just need to remake the brackets before I can actually finish the install

How about just notch'n the tube? It'll still fit snugly, and the notch would keep it in the proper position.

Should be able to push up on the gas line enough to clear the way

You mean actual cut space in the fence post for the gas line ?
I think that, with the gas line intruding into the post by 3/4 inch, the sewer hose wouldn't be able to fit in properly.
The rhino-flex fittings, sitting in the gutter tray, don't have a lot of clearance.

How would I determine the length of pipe I would need? I found a few storage containers on Amazon that look stock and are a little cheaper than piecing this system together. A 64 inch for $54 and a 94 inch for $64. I have a 2016 320A Vengeance.

It's only on one end and you can get around that by loading from the other end. I would notch the tube.

Yes it is only at the door side of the 5er, so I would naturally be loading from the other side anyway, but due to the diameter of the Rhino-flex hose connectors I don't think it would fit under the 3/4" protusion, so I wouldn't be able to fit the hose + extension in the storage post

I don't have any problem with making the brackets deeper, and having a 3/4" gap between the post and the frame.
Are you concerned that it not being snug could cause some extra movement (even if I bolt the post to the brackets) ?
If that's the concern then I could possibly use something (wood?) to pack some of that gap towards either end.

That's what I did since my lower body panels came down past the frame about 3/4 inch I just shimmed with wood, although I did mount it to the 5/5 tube with screws, being careful to screw it to the edge of the tube to avoid any interference with the sewer hose, so it would be between the tube and frame and not fall out.

Isn't Rinio flex a 3" hose? If it is, it'll fit with the hose ends on, just not the adaptor from hose sewer end to sewer pipe.....have no trouble with mine.
