Why do these batteries get hot?
I'd find this out first (cabling, batteries not healthy? other batteries not healthy so these batteries take all the load, etc)

I'd connect the sensor to the battery that get's the highest temperature, but the fact that a battery get's hot would concern me a lot!

Do you have pictures of the battery setup?

@Dirk

Battery temperatures going up when charging do indicate more serious problems.

Since we have no idea if your Multi settings correct for charging your battery bank or how your system is wired, or even how old the batteries are, the question cannot be answered with certainty.

The first thing that does come to mind is that there is some internal problems, like shorting, in the batteries.
