I found a white crusty-like substance on one the battery post to my trailer, so I cleaned it up and reattached the cable. How do I prevent this from happening again? I see where grease is applied to the post and clamp, or in older times, a penny put near it, I guess to draw the corrosion away from the post. I need a better solution. Thanks


which post was it? if it was the positive post it could mean your overcharging your battery, if the negitive post it could mean your not charging long enough. aside from cleaning and using the corosion pads and greases, you should try to prevent whats causing it in the first place, if there is inface an issue.

I had that problem with my diesel tractors other equipment with a battery. Sitting for a couple of weeks before being used and on and off charging systems.
I've used Whip battery protection for over 35 years now with no more acid issues around connection points.

Not mentioned yet is the water level in each cell. This always occurs if the cells are overfilled with water. I notice if I keep the level above the plates and just below the ring, I don't get the corrosion. If your batteries are not on a slide like mine, it's hard to see the level and hard to fill also.
