Is it OK to change the way the regulator is facing?

Is there a particular reason the valve is facing the trailer and cannot be facing forward?

I can imagine it is some safety thought, but the hose is so long it is well below the frame rails.

Let me expand a little, You can mount the regulator anyway you want EXCEPT vents facing up and spring case (adjustment hole) facing down in the horizontal position. It is also a good practice to protect the regulator from road splash, mud, dirt etc to keep the vents clean. If it can't breathe it will not work.
Hope this helps
regards

Im just wondering how far the hose hangs below the frame? That could be a safety concern if it catches on road kill or debris.

That was my first thought when I saw it. The hose was hanging down about 3-4 inches below the frame. Then I saw the valve/regulator was shoved up against the fiberglass so you can hardly see the indicator. I am turning it around.
