deep water problems

This weekend i went through a mud hole - bottom of the seat deep and high centered trying to get out the other side then it died. I did get it started and had some family members push me back into the hole and try a different angle to get out and it died again and could not get it started. I read some post that said all electrical problems need to be sealed so I will try that. Any other suggestions? Then after being pulled out I was able to start right up but put in High gear and it appeared the belt was slipping - wasn't moving to good and I could smell something like it was getting hot. I have not driven it since and was wondering does water need drained somewhere or just let it dry out on it's own? Any help would be great.
Thanks

Might have got mud up in the CVT vent. Also if you were reving up to get out of the hole, you should check your belt defection.

I agree, you probably got water & mud up in the CVT. I got water/mud up in my cvt, ended up having to open the CVT, drain/wipe out water, and adjust my belt. I think I saw a drain somewhere in the case for the CVT, but I don't remember. Besides, since you were in mud, you will want to make sure you get the mud out. Anyway, you will probably want to snorkel the teryx if your gonna be in mud/water again. There is a thread on here somewhere on how to make snorkel for cheap.

Found it...

if its got carbs, their is vent tubes on the drivers side of the carbs that come together in a y then run down. when in deep water that tube gets blocked and the engine will bog then die. reroute that tube up and you should be able to go as deep as you snorkel the belt and engine intake. Ive had mine as deep as the top of the seat and it motors through like a hippo
