Link 2000 Issue

This post is for a friend of mine. He claims that his Link 2000 is acting up. I have not been able to check it out personally, but here is how he describes the problem;

The symptoms are that the voltage on the Link says 15.8 even though the
voltage at the battery by the multi meter says 13.4 or so. Also, the Link
2000 isn't registering any charging happening even though I know the Xantrex
is charging the batteries giving the voltage rise when the boat is plugged
into shore power and the fact that they stay up to the proper voltage even
after running the 12-volt refrigeration for 3 days.

The normal connection tests and cleaning the terminals have not resolved the
Thoughts? Theories??
