My 09 prowler has a problem dying when i get into deeper water, airbox and belts are snorkeled and sealed tight, it dies before the airbox touches the water just about deep enough to get the fuse box wet, checked all the fuses when it died they were fine, moved the power commander to a higher dry place and still wouldnt crank, as soon as i got it out of the water it fired right up no problem, anyone have any thoughts or ideas on how to remedy this issue?
(i plan to dielectric grease all the connections and the spark plug boot before my next ride)

That would be the best thing to do next. Did you put silicone the drain valves?
drain valves have been siliconed, only thing i havnt done is run the vent lines for my diffs

Sounds to me like your spark is getting wet.. check your spark plug wire as well as your coil, I've heard of both of these parts giving people grief when they go in to the deep stuff. My 10 xtx is all scuba'd up too, i'd highly recommend extending your diff vent lines.. even then if you're gonna frequently run deep water i'd recommend changing the diff fluid a lot more.. even with mine extended I still seem to get a bit of water when I spend a day riding in water up to the steering wheel :) no big surprise I guess lol

i spoke with an artic cat mechanic and he said the same thing about the spark, and i normally do extend my vent lines but was in a big rush to get ready for a ride, wont be home for another week so itll be a little bit before i can remedy the problem and test it
thanks for the advice
