Also, most plug in type surge protectors (point of use) require a whole house surge protector in the panel. Itís in the fine print of their warranties.

Yes I see studs on both sides of both panels. My question would be if I mount on the bottom side I’ll have to extend the leads all the way up to the circuit breaker at the top. This would not be nearly as affected as I read.

Alternatively I could put the 50A breaker at the bottom. But it doesn’t sound as affective as being mounted at the top. Ideas?

Can i cut into the studs on each side to mount or is that not good? It would allow tying into top circuit breaker, ground and neutral without extending any wires (barely).

You could always just leave it sit in the bottom of the panel. Iím not a fan of this way, but itís been done and passed inspection
