I am having problems with my awning light on my Grampian van. It has 2 bulbs, which don't seem to last long before blowing. Any ideas?

Two things worth checking.

 

Firstly ensure that the contacts at the base of the bulb(s) are both clean, and making a firm connection. Any sparking here will reduce the bulb life.

 

Also check the mechanical integrity of the bulb holders. If the bulb is allowed to vibrate excessively whilst traveling, it is possible for the filaments to break through shaking.

 

Regards,

Gordon.
