Whew, just read through this thread again. Frontward or backward? Is that really an issue? I think what you want is the ability to see the indicator on your crossover switch. My tanks face forward and they are covered. It was easy for me to read the indicator until I had to replace it. Got a new one, that works great by the way, and installed it. With the cover in place, I can't see the little green/red glass any more. Solution? I now pack a small hand mirror that works really well. Give that a try before you spend money on new hoses and such. There are some real issues out their with our trailers. I don't think this is one of them.

Some folks might think the mirror reverses the colors on the indicator? Just kidding, this is another "Don't raise the bridge, lower the river" conversation. Mirrors are cheap, they work, and don't change the colors. Simple is good.

I simply turned mine around to face forward. Not that big of a deal but easy to make it easier.
