OpenVPN Private IP address conflict
I have used OpenVPN successfully home for several years on my SG-2440. The only problem I had was when I was connected to a network with the same 192.168.1.0 /24 subnet as my pfsense lan. When I tried to access a local client at my home, it must have gotten confused between the two common subnets.
I am setting up an XG-7100 and I am considering using a different private address. It makes sense to use the most obscure one I can think of. Is this a security through obscurity concern, or just trying to minimize conflicts? Is this the best way to try to avoid conflicts or is there another solution?

I used to have that problem, when I was doing a lot of travelling with work. For that reason, I moved my home network to the 172.16.0.0 block. I have only once seen that used elsewhere. Many people don't bother changing the subnet, when setting up their network, so there are a lot that are the same. Even still, with 192.168.0.0 /24, there are only 256 possibilities.
