If you're using the word 'combiner' in a generic sense, I'm all for it. But if you mean combiner, as in relay, then I'm not sold. I do a lot of battery system installations and, if left to my own devices (no pun), I shy away from relays or any 'automatic' mechanical gadgets. They seem to sell well however, in spite of a fairly poor history, and that statement blankets all brands.
Related to that, I was surprised, though I shouldn't have been, I guess, to read that Xantrex cautions about the AC transfer relay used in their inverters could be subject to contacts welding.
I admit to being somewhat gun-shy as re relays, but it comes from memories of running out to my car at 3 am to rap the relay box to silence the horn.

John,
Let's just say that you were right, and leave it at that... Very humiliating experience for Mr. Hog.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
