Default Battery Condition

My 2009 Club Car Precedent 48V golf cart is kept in an unheated garage over the winter. I went in the garage to check the water level in the 6 batteries. When I lifted the seat I noticed that the batteries and battery cables were covered in water droplets. The seat itself was dry. I added about an ounce of distilled water to each of the cells. All the plates were covered before adding any water. I just wanted to bring the water up to the correct level. My question is why would there be water droplets on the batteries and battery cables? The battery charger has not been plugged in for about 2-3 weeks. Also should I try and dry the batteries and battery cables before I charge the batteries?

In Indiana, presumably, as in Iowa you recently went through some very cold weather. Then it warmed up quite a bit, more than 50 degrees F, with very moist air. Water condensed on the cold batteries would be my first thought. I personally would ignore it.

Bbriggs, Thanks for your reply. Yes we went from -35* wind chill Jan. 30 to almost 60* a couple of days later.

That would be my thoughts also, especially in view of Toolmaker Bob's additional information. Just dry it off to keep the batteries clean.
