wondering if theres any advantage to mounting the dc SPD in the combiner rather than mini panel.  Id rather do it in the panel and have a cleaner look outside at the combiner.


Maybe catching the surge closer to it's source is better than having it get into your box where it could have a chance to jump into other things.
