He'd only need the link 20, not the 2000, which is designed to control a Freedom series inverter IIRC.
One size almost never fits all.

Then add a monitor - pick your favorite depending on how many banks you run. The Xantrex XBM I use is capable of being rigged so that it will monitor two if you wire the down rocker to your start battery; saves a lot of money over the link 2000.

Use an Echo Charger instead of an ACR... :)

The only problem with using a voltmeter to judge depth of discharge is that the batteries have to be left without a load or charge on them for a few hours to see the true voltage level. Measuring the specific gravity of the electrolyte on wet cell batteries is far more accurate, but messier. :)

The Outback FlexMax 60/80 have a diversion relay option.
After buying the Xantrex C60, I see that it doesn't do MPPT. Darn.

Anyone know if there is something similar on the market that does MPPT?
