Lead Sled has got a problem

I'm wondering if every body has the same trouble keeping a charging system together in a Mk 7? I can't keep my battery terminals from corroding, and the stock replacement alternator is already starting to fail after only 11 months. I even tried to solve the battery thing with a very interesting idea, terminal ends with a grease serk. They worked great until the oxidiation pushed all of the grease out of the terminal caps. I tried platnum StreetWires ends on a 94 Splash, and they didn't work either. Am I over working my charging system? I haven't even added the 15" subs that have been planned yet.
