Try this - when installing the clamp to the post, let the top of the clamp sit flush with battery post top, which leaves a gap between the bottom of the clamp and top of battery.

I notice the pass side battery clamp has a gap at its bottom, and very clean, yet the driver side battery clamp was resting on top of the battery, and it was full of that green junk. I removed the clamp, cleared off good, reinstalled it, flush to top of battery post.

And I sprayed a lube/corrosion control fluid on it. Seems to be working ok.

Going to try that as well. Noticed the green junk build up on battery clamp as well.

One thing that may help prevent corrosion even with leaking acid is Fluid Film. It will coat the metal and prevent acid from reaching it. It won't cure the issue, but may help prevent the cable ends from getting destroyed.
