Valiente-

Any of the Link battery monitors will work with the RS... but the Link 1000/2000 are more expensive since they have the ability to control Freedom series inverter/charger units. If you want to monitor two banks, get the Link 20, if just one, get the Link 10.

Think about it for a moment... why would Xantrex make a battery monitor that you couldn't use with any of the chargers it makes? That would be pretty stupid. The only real difference between the Link 10/20 and the Link 1000/2000 is the fact that the Link 1000/2000 can control the Freedom series of inverter/charger units... which the Link 10/20 can't.

I am still wondering what idiot told you that you couldn't use the Link 10/20 with the RS2000.

There is nothing in any of the literature or specifications that says you can't use the Link 10/20 with any battery charger. If you had a Freedom series inverter/charger, getting the Link 1000/2000 would make a bit more sense, since it can be used to control the Freedom unit... but there is absolutely no reason you couldn't use the Link 10/20 with the Freedom series units either.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
