We went scouting Saturday and got into some pretty bad bogs and then some deep stream crossings. After the bogs I had some slipping so I pulled the plug and drain a bunch of water out of the belt housing. The slipping went away after about 15 seconds of riding (this was all in low range). I switched to high and it hooked up great! After each of the next three deep clear-water crossing I had to drain it (not as much water came out these times). Each time it hooked up great in high but took a bit in low. After staying out of the water I how zero problems. The plug is great, but how do I keep it dry?
We are hitting the hills for a week starting tomorrow afternoon, so I am buying a new belt to take with me just in case. I just wish I could keep it dry to begin with! FYI, my wife was on the 500HO (bought at the same time as the 6x6) and it was bone dry when I pulled the drain plug on it :-)
