1000 x problems... fan fuse, transmission

hey guys i have a few problems/concerns and questions... i have a 2011 1000 x and i have had issues since its been new with the fan fuse blowing after ive been in water.. the dealership replaced the fan motor assembly and it still had the same problem until recently the dealership put in a relay to trip instead of the fuse blowing. it seems to be working and not blowing the fuse but i was riding yesterday (in the midwest) and i ran about a five mile stretch down a road at about 60mph and it went into limp home mode due to over heating i slowed down and the fan was running... it cooled down and i continued on my way.. when i got home i smelled gear oil... i opened the dump bed and a breather hose by the cvt exhaust was boiling out gear oil onto the the exhaust and skid plate/ frame... any suggestions as to where i need to start... Can am corporate has already denied my claims on the fan stating that it was user abuse due to deep water going into a breather hose on top of the fan.. thanks

Was it the differential hose or gear box

i would say it was the gearbox since it was that far forward... i'm guessing its the same issue i had with my renegade in that the gearbox takes in water through a shitty one way valve that's on the end of the hose and the water breaks down the oil and causes the excess to over flow.. my renegade was so bad when it was winter it would freeze in gear and i'd ave to drag it into my garage to defrost it in order to shift the gears when it was cold.. i fixed it by swapping oil and running the breather and valve over the handle bars
