Alternator output

I am not sure if I have a problem or not. My Solar
panels go into float which tells my Victron bmv 602 tjat batterys are charged. When i start the motor the Victron says i am inputting between 40 - 30 amps. Would this be a problem if the batteries are full ?

Re: Alternator output

For how long? A few minutes and then it tapers off?
