Polaris outlaw 110 stalls in when wet?

I'm new to the forum. I bought my 2 kids 110 efi's last year. 1 outlaw & 1 sportsman. They run great. The kids love them. One problem is if it is wet out and they rip through a puddle, I'm not talking about a deep puddle. We're talking 3 to 6 inches deep. But at speed so as to splash water up. They will stall and be no start for 5 or so minutes. Seems electrical but other than the one module up near the front I don't know of anything. Plus I sprayed that box with it running and it does not stall. I sprayed all up under everything and could not get either of them to stall. But one whoosh through a puddle and shutdown!!

I would think there is a common denominator because both machines do it. Of course the outlaw more than the sportsman just due to the lack of protection from water splash on the outlaw. Any magic bullets for this??

Thanks for any help

Family set up= 110 sportsman, 110 outlaw, 570 sportsman EPS, Arctic Cat 550H1 2up.

Check all your fuses are properly in place and tight. I had a same problem with my Phoenix 200 and was a loose fuse. Water was getting inside the fuse slot.

Life is to short to live it miserably

ensure you go through every connection with dielectric grease also.

In the 70's we filled all the connectors with Vaseline - dielectric grease was either not available or too expensive back then. Did the same thing - kept water out of the connectors. I'm gonna get flack for this, but when water gets into a connector (specifically a loose connector) the insulating properties of the water cause a loss of continuity. When the connector dries out the connection remakes and it is fine till it gets wet again.

Let me explain - water is an insulator - it is made of hydrogen and oxygen - neither hydrogen or oxygen conduct electricity, but water will carry many conductive materials - nickel, iron, sodium, copper to name a few - but water in a connector can cause a loss of continuity.
