What amp reading does charger show? High amp reading would make charger plug hot, but if amperage is 15 or less, check the contacts and the cables in the connection for a bad or loose connection. Heat is caused by high amperage or bad or corroded connection. Heat is resistance! High amperage can indicate you have a battery with bad cell. Do you have a voltmeter to check each batteries voltage?
