Arrow Coleman-mach digital thermostat

Can you install a Coleman-mach digital thermostat (8330-3362) vertically instead of horizontally? Replacing OEM analog with digital for better temp control. The new one is 1" wider than the current location between the bathroom door and a cabinet and I don't really want to relocate it, leaving a nice big hole. It just fits okay if I turn it 90 degrees. Yeah, it'll look crazy, but will it still work?

What do the instruction say. "Do they say must be level"? There really should be no reason why it wouldn't work vertically.

I read instructions 3 times (very unlike me to even read once) but there is nothing about horizontal or vertical. Half tempted to install it and see if it works. Headed out for 4 days on Thursday so that would be a good trial.
DW thinks I'm nuts and should just send it back. What fun would that be?

digital thermostat

Since it is digital, there should be no reason it won't work even if you install it sideways. You might get a crick in your neck however! lol
