Default Battery question

About six weeks ago I went to the lease and while there I took loose all of my battery cables and cleaned the terminals and battery posts. Then I applied a liberal amount of dielectric/anti oxidant grease and reconnected everything. Upon arrival late last week I saw that there was a little blue corrosion on about three battery posts/terminals. I'm still getting good longevity out of these four and a half year old batteries as far as run time and pack voltage is good as well.

Any insight?

Corrosion will be more noticed on older batteries as they tend to bubble more on use and more so on subsequent charging. Storage as well as use in hot climates can add to this too. By all means re-clean the terminals and keep your water level over the plates but not too full as that can aggravate bubbling and/or leakage. Keep them well charged, watered and clean to get the most out of them as your already past the general life span....

I'm expecting to have to replace them next year. It would be nice to get one more hunting season out of them but if they get where I can't at least get ten miles or so per charge I will replace before then.

It reads like you applied the dielectric/anti oxidant grease before you reconnected the wire terminals. You should have put them back together and then applied the dielectric/anti oxidant grease.

You called that one right. Thanx for that tip. I will correct that on my next trip to the lease.
