cathedral cieling bath exhaust fan?

so i buy the fan my wife picked and open it up to install it in the new bathroom and it says *for flat cielings only*
now what? it is a broan 6" recessed light and fan. i have it installed but not wired till i figure this out- no where on the box or on line did it say this but it is in the directions- i will call the tech line monday when they open.... i installed it with the vent opening on the up hill side so a damper wouldnt just hang open like if it was on the downhill side..... any thoughts?

call the manufacturer to verify. Maybe somebody put the wrong instruction sheet in your box.
One time I got a kitchen faucet, and in the box they had bathroom faucet instructions.

so i called- the answer was the motor wasnt ul listed to run on an angle, only flat so he said the motor would not last long running like this?
