Don't laugh I'm new to this.
The charger overcomes the 'draw', hence you are still charging
. If the charger is capable of 50amps, you are using 20amps, the batteries get the remaining 30amps. With a smart charger, it'll provide the needed draw (up to it's limits) while at float stage, thus the batteries don't see any of the draw.
If you are using 80amps sustained with a 50amp charger, the charger will run it's programed cycle (bulk/absorption/float), then you have a problem.
