Default battery terminal corrosion

I have a 48 volt '06 Precedent and am having trouble with corrosion on 2 particular battery terminals. I've pulled, wire brushed, sprayed with terminal protector, and I'm still having trouble with them. It's like almost after every charge.

I'm also having trouble with the cart not wanting to run every once in a while. I found on most occasions I can work the forward/reverse switch back and forth several times it will go.
I have a 500 amp Altrex controller on it also, so should I have changed this switch out with a heavy duty switch when I installed controller?

How old are the batteries? Did you spray that protector AFTER mounting the cable or before? How is the levels in the cells of the batteries?

You can spray contact cleaner on that switch, you don't need a HD switch for this type cart as no high amperage goes through it.

If the batteries are a little aged, and you are keeping the cells filled to the top, they will boil and corrode constantly. Overfilling the cells is the most common reason to find corrosive buildup

I'm pretty anal about keeping cells full, but not too full, and clean.
The problem with the cart not moving is that it only happens every now and then. I bought some good contact cleaner and sprayed the switch, but probably need to un-screw it and pull it away from body and spray again.

batteries are 2-3 years old. I figured I should get another year or so out of em, hopefully.
And I sprayed protector before and after mounting
