I have a trunk mounted battery in a Chevy Nova. The battery is not in a plastic battery box. I run a one wire alternator that charges 14.6 volts max. After about a month, everything metal with the slightest scratch within two feet of the battery develops corrosion. The terminals generally look good. I have tried three different Bosch batteries with the same result. The batteries are standard 12 volt and are sealed---at least no place to add water. I have mounted batteries in the trunk of other cars before without an issue. What am I doing wrong?
Sounds like battery is out gassing badly I would try a battery box. Where is battery grounded?
The difference between ignorance and stupidity. Ignorance is lack of knowledge. Stupidity is the inability to learn. Don't be stupid
If the battery is gassing, there is a problem, always.
Overcharging, undercharged, shorted cell....
Is the compartment vented at all?
Are you using a maintenance charger in between races?
You could be cycling the batteries too deep.
