battery oxidation

I have dual batteries on my truck but one of my batteries keeps oxidizing. i have a cleaning/protector kit that I use. however this negative terminal on one of the batteries just keeps oxidizing after a bit no matter what I do. I cleaned/sprayed protector on there, put felt spacers under each terminal.
Any ideas?

It's oxidizing due to a leak - that's the reason for all batteries to corrode. There are different chemical fixes out there for this and you need to shop for a cure based on how to seal the post to the case. Some fixes go on like paint. A smear of grease isn't all bad.

Very true only a leaking battery would cause that problem.

A weak battery that constantly needs charging will do this also. The gas that is released during charging will cause corrosion. A weak battery requires more charging so there will be more gasses present.

Not to sure on only a leaking battery oxidizes...... Chet is closer to the reason many batteries oxidize doesen't take much for a eltro-chemical reaction to form the gunk on the posts. Not to say batterys don't leak around the posts....... but I treat all the posts and still have the gunk after a few months etc...
