Get a gel-cell sealed battery and no worries anymore. The corrosion is due to leaking acid or vapors from the battery. Dont wheel with a regular battery or you are asking for trouble and/or injury. Make sure you wear safety glasses when you clean the terminals as acid residue in your eyes hurts like all get out.
