Battery's gurgling while being charged?
Sorry, to bother you guys with my stupid questions, but one question is--do batteries normally gurgle while being charged?
Mine have now been on my 15 amp Schauer charger (using the automatic, maintenance free mode) for 17 hours. The charge rate has dropped from 15 to about 11.....the directions on the charger say that the rate will drop to "near zero" and then the charge will be maintained.....so far I wouldn't say the batteries are boiling but they are warm to the touch and like I say "gurgling".
Someone told me--I believe on this forum--that the oxide or whatever--nasty residue I complained about, was from loose connections. The connections were't loose????
It seems the "stuff" is coming up from the bottom of the compartment...have I got a loose connection underneath somewhere? The doors are hinged at the bottom, as you all know, and the stuff spills up just back of there and then has spoiled the look of the fake chrome on the outside.
Any ideas? Especially how to stop the process...
