Xantrex Truecharge 40+ only charging at 20 amps?

I recently upgraded to this charger.

Our boat is on a mooring ball. We use a Honda 2000 to power the Xantrex.

We have two flooded batteries in one bank (powering radar, chartplotter, and refridge).

The other bank is a two flooded battery house bank.

The last is a simple start battery.

Even when the banks are run down pretty low, we only see a 20 AMP charge on the Xantrex and have never seen 40.

All 5 batteries are brand new (this year) 12 volt flooded deep cycle.

Is this NORMAL or expected? or EXPLAINABLE?

Thanks
Al
