Your WFCO converter is three stage and supplies a max of 55 amps (55 x13.5 = 742 watts) to the batteries, if the batteries a significantly discharged (bulk charging). That figures to about 7 amps @ 120 volts (840 watts). Typically, I see 4 amps max @ 120 volts (480 watts) when charging the batteries after running the fridge and ice maker for a day (absorption charge). The size of the battery bank (in ah) and the type of batteries (flooded, AGM, gel) will effect the absorption amperage but not the bulk charge amperage since the bulk charging amperage is the max the converter can supply.
