Hmm. I do not think I have the AAR on Cream Puff. I think the Link2000 is just a battery monitor. I will need to dig into this. Where is the 2000R unit located normally?

Thank you to tray to solve my problem.
LinkLite and LinkPro do not replace Link 2000 and/or Link2000R .
LinkLite and LinkPro only monitor battery .
Link2000 is a dual battery monitor and inverter/charger controller .
Link 2000R adds to Link2000 an Advanced Alternator Regulator . The AAR is absolutely excellent because it charges battery in a fast and safe way . It changes charging cycles according to actual electrical parameters and not according to a pre-set time as almost all other regulators do .
Can the new Xantrex version of the Link 2000 be used as a replacement, the LinkLite or LinkPro?
Thank you Bill,
Time by time I revised the WEB and contacted all the shop who adv
Link 2000 and 2000R but till now I have found anything.
At the moment the only company who still adv. both items is Dockyard Electric (Chaguaramas T&T) .
One year ago I contacted them but they had neither Link 2000 nor 2000R .
If for my next sailing season (jan. - Abr.) I did not found what I wish, I will be obliged to change the configuration of my Energy Management.
I saw one on eBay a few months ago. You might try there.
Hi to All ,
my Link 2000 R was damaged from a lightning that struck not sufficiently far from Sunny Side . This is the second time I lost it for the same reason.
The first time Tekris Power (NJ) fixed it but they no longer give this service.
Anybody knows who can repair it ?
I am also interested in buying a new one or a second hand from someone who changed to other type of Energy Management .
