Default Touch test

I just got back from a week at the coast. We really put our 2010 Club Car Precedent through a work out, 4 or 5 miles a day. I monitored the voltage on the pack (2010 batteries) after a charge and before and after each trip. All the battery posts looked perfect, no corrosion at all. All cable nuts were tight. While doing my voltage measurements, I happened to reach down and touch the individual battery posts. The posts on one battery were hot. Not so hot that you could not hold your fingers on them, but much hotter than the rest. I flipped the switch to tow and began to disconnect each cable and clean the terminals on the batteries and on the cables with a soft wire brush. I cleaned all the posts on all 6 batteries and also checked the individual battery voltage. After the reassembly, I took it on a 3 mile trip. When I got back, there was no difference in the temperature of the battery posts, they were all cool, problem solved. Lesson learned, you can't go by looks alone, there must have been some resistance in the connections due to oxidation that I could not see. From now on, I will use the touch test along with a visual inspection
