from the Xantrex linklite meter to the blue sky remote or do I need to put a second shunt in series with the original shunt and run separate wires to the blue sky remote display
If you want to track only the solar performance:
The Blue Sky battery side
of the shunt is connected to the Link-Lite's load side
of the shunt..
If you want to have two battery monitors
then use the LinkLite's shunt and stack the small gauge shunt sense wires
of the Blue Sky on top of the LinkLite shunt sense wires
. You won't need two shunts in this case.
