Its hard to say what the OP had go wrong. But for those venturing in deep water/mud more the the tire depth to the rim. Things need to be consider. Non of this first gen Compass like mine or I believe even the 2010 were trail rated. If you look in the owners manual and there is no section of fording river/creek you can be certain deep water is not engineered to be tolerated.
Ever Dif had a ven of some sort for air expansion. On ours its likely a small cap off the diff housing somewhere. You will need to remove the cap and replace it with an extension tube (neoprene corded) would be best caping it so it can still breath way up higher so that water and debris cannot enter. A cooling down diff is suck the submerge fluid into it easily. I doesn't mater on vehicle whether ATV, Suv, van, car etc there is a breather on each dif somewhere it has to breath. Rotors are far better than drum brakes as they can self clean and/or flushed much easier. If going deep enough for electrical plugs getting submerged then applying dielectric grease in them saves the side effects of contact corrosion.
Getting into that submerged situation is not good for anyone.
