I did a similar distribution block on my side-by-side.

Does my solar panel wire need to go directly to the battery? Or could it go to a distribution block like you have? In my picture above, my solar panel wire is the small yellow wire spliced to the small black wire. I wasn't sure what that went to until I disconnected it. The solar panel controller really doesn't like not have a battery at the end of the line. A constant alarm goes off.

My battery feeds the 100 amp breaker then the distribution block. As long as you solar controller has a feedback break (which most do) I see no reason why you could not go to the battery side of the main first (in my photo). Or you main Fred on the distribution block.
Hope this helps.
Keith
