Can the XW+ be mounted at a slight forward leaning angle?

Issue:
The install location for the XW+ happens to have a slight forward lean.  Is it okay to install it there?

Product Line:
Conext XW, Conext XW+

Enviroment:
Any XW+ installation without a straight vertical surface.

Resolution:
It is not recommended to install the XW at an angle.  It should be mounted straight up and vertical.

Cause:
Being at an angle can cause extra stress on the mounting bracket.  Mounting screws may become loose due to normal vibrations from the inverter.  It will very likely also vibrate louder than intended due to the angle.  Unfortunately, we also cannot guarantee that the XW+ would de-rate properly at higher temperatures.
