check the Ground connection..battery cleaned free of corrosion...make sure the cable to the block and the cable to the chassis are 50 amp cables and solidly connected~ power has no where to go and blows the bulb~ is a grounding issue~

the reverse lights may be a defective or bent switch bracket...dunno...need to inspect that~ seems like a link and reed switch type affair~

When a fuse blows, that would be a short created by a power wire touching ground. So then probably the back-up light switch for the lights to be staying on.
