I can tell you everyone has one of those type of blunders. I don't think a person can own an RV without doing something very crazy.......

I use the RED/GREEN treated felt washers under the terminals to prevent this. It is sulphuric acid (electrolyte) fumes reacting with the copper terminal and plating out on the plastic battery case. The felt has a neutralizing chemical that stops the reaction.
