Where To Mount The Charger?

I'm looking at building a diagonal mount for the Zivan NG3 charger. The manual says vertical mounting is preferred but the unit is too tall. I had it mounted horizontally last year but now the BMS needs to sit somewhere nearby so going diagonally looks like the best option. The wires will easily miss the trunk hinge and the fans/vent openings can be clear of obstructions this way.

The Hardy BMS-48 has mounting tabs on it's outer casing that exactly line up with the two stock rubber mounts from the Solectria charger. I think that's a sign telling me to use the existing rubber mounts.
