The front two batteries behind the radiator grille are the lowest voltage in the pack. They also get more drain then other batteries because they supply 24V to the controller and to the contactor. Furthermore, one of the front batteries is tied to the IsoBatMon unit. Thus, we have a perfect storm happening on the front-center battery that gets the highest load, and equalizes last due to a slightly different zener drop on the BatMon board.
