Battery Boiling Over / Loosing Volts

Looking for Answers or an Idea as to what could be causing the Problem...It may be considered Off Topic as my Query doesn't involve a Jeep Compass but rather a 2500 Laramie Dodge Diesel... Twice now the Pair of Batteries have Pouched , they start by boiling over , terminals curode , loose volts..... Yes I've gotten suggestions to clean terminals thoroughly and coat terminals with grease. My query is being that this is twice now , would anyone hazard a guess is to why this chain of events leading to Battery Failure comes about ?? Thanks

If your batteries are boiling over, I'd get the voltage regulator/control box on the altenator checked, it's over charging. (sorry if I'm getting lost in translation. Just found out ye guys call brake disc's rotor's)

That would be my thought as well, over charging can definitely cause this and lead to premature battery failure.
