I betting that if you check the manual the "load" taps are limited to a very low current. Check that and let us know. It is probably not applicable to your installation; use plan B. There are some application (highway signs and ATNs, for example) where is is just a bit more efficient to use some power directly, and the load is by definition, limited to about the panel output. This is VERY common and does not hint that it is not marine friendly.
Remember to place a small fuse between the batteries and the charger. Very important.
Does the charger have an AGM setting? If not, it is unsuitable for your batteries.
