cv belt housing drain?

I swamped my rex the other day and was wondering if there is a drain plug to drain the water out. after dragging it outta the swamp i managed to get it started but it would barely move do to water in belt housing. I drove it home anyways cuz thought of getting home on the end of a tow strap with a rhino on the other didnt appeal to me and after awhile all the water must a finally blown out cuz it stopped slipping and off i went. Just wanted to know for if/when it happens again. I know my buddies rhino has a drain plug and hope i got one too, if so wheres it at? I know ineed snorkles but that wont be until spring

It is, you have to remove one of the bolts at the bottom of the primary side of the sheave and it comes out the bolt hole.

No drain hole. Found that out the hard way too. Kind of makes snorks a priority lol. I've read some posts of guys taping their housing somehow. Haven't seen pics but sounds like a good idea.

I was thinking drilling a hole at the bottom that would fit a removable rubber plug (or something else) that I could get to pull out, drain and replace.

Not sure if its on here or Teryxforum but I'm positive that someones posted on this before. Try and search the threads see what you find. If I come across it i'll post a link if I can. Kind of thinking the same things as yourself. Miss my drain plug on my old poo. Quick and easy.
