I don't know about other maintenance, but I personally would never turn off an engine that is currently under water, even partially. The engine running is the only thing keeping water from backing up through the tailpipe. Not to mention that when the engine turns off, it'll have a small about of back pressure that will suck the water right in.
Just my 2-cents, but that's always been what i've been taught about off-roadin'
I'm glad it is running though! Shows how awesome the Vstrom is.
