I ran the car in the not so dry AZ desert last weekend and when I removed the skid plates and plastics to clean water poured out of the rear skid plate center bolts. It would suck to trap water inside the frame and have it eventually .

I ended up drilling a hole between them and the skid plate for a drain hole.

Worse than corrosion, if there's enough water and it freezes it will split the tube.

The original Yamaha Rhino frame had two vertical tubes that were not drilled to drain. They would collect water and many Rhinos had these tubes split from freezing.

This is the first I've heard of this on the new RZR's. If you're in a cold part of the country and store the RZR in an unheated area, I'd be checking this right away. Even a night in the trailer could be a problem.
