Has anyone else had this happen? After every 1 - 2 trips to the lake, we ended up blowing out a bulb. It's only happened to the one on the right. This morning I took them both off. The bulb that has always worked (the left one) ended up having a number of 1154 (if I'm remembering right). The right bulb (the one that blows out) had a different number, something like 1034 (I think).

I replaced the 1034 with an 1154 and added some bulb grease around where the glass of the bulb meets the housing that connects the light to the harness. Would having a weaker bulb (the 1034) cause the light to blow out? I'm hoping there was just too much current flowing through the smaller bulb, causing it to pop. Until now I thought a 1034 was the proper size, so that's the size we've been purchasing as replacements. This is our first time installing an 1154Anyone have any ideas?

PS. The past two times there has been water in the glass and either a chip or a big piece of the glass missing. I'm not dropping them when I install them, and I'm making sure to not crack the bulb when I'm installing them.
