    Affirmative according to the definition and 2014 Analysis of Change (below). And then to add the 2017

    Accessible, Readily (Readily Accessible). Capable of being reached quickly for operation, renewal, or inspections without requiring those to whom ready access is requisite to actions such as to use tools, to climb over or remove obstacles, or to resort to portable ladders, and so forth.

    So a bottle of Lysol is an obstruction? I didn't know that AFCI protective devices must be readily accessible. Live and learn.

    AFCI breaker should be accessible in a breaker panel, what other AFCI devices are you thinking of?

    The DW GFCI can be wired where the test button is on the counter receptacle making it accessible.

    2017 Art 550. Dishwashers in mobile and manufactured homes will require GFCI protection and the AFCI requirements will now mirror the dwelling requirements.

    Wow, just saw a 15-amp, TR-AFCI for $128.00. Could this be a misprint?

    That's probably a package of six.
