So, it is your expansion module or the usb cable that is causing the bus lock.
The date change was caused by the bus lock.

When the USB for the expansion is plugged in, obviously my powerheads are working. But my Fuge light also comes on. When I disconnect it, both things stop. Anyways to get around this? Also, I reloaded the head unit without the expansion connected and it seems to be working right...time and date still crazy...?

You need to reset the date/time.
The internal clock has already been corrupt by the bus lock.
If the module is causing the bus lock, it is bad and you need to replace it.

You can use the portal or phone app to set the time.
Does the bus lock happen the minute you connect the USB cable?
It could be a loose cable too.
You need to troubleshoot to see what is causing the bus lock.
I would start checking for water damage too.

Maybe it is the cable, because when the usb is plugged it the power heads work. When I plug it in the status light starts blinking red. And I feel the USB is the cheapest start. I really don't have the extra funds right for it to be the expansion! I got my jaebos from you and have no way to run them other than through the expansion. All my electronics are out of waters reach and have no contact with water.
