Two possibilities come to mind right off.

One, you have the polarity reversed on the batteries.

Two, you have a short somewhere, wires crossed or connected wrong, and that is draining your batteries and getting things hot.

Drew, can you upload some pictures or take a video and upload to YouTube to show members what's going on? It would be helpful.
