Voltage won't make much of a difference, unless its extremely high.

I'm going to go out on a limb here by saying you regularly use both bulbs in the fixture and that those fixtures get hot. That heat will lower the already short expected lifespan. Then, if you travel a lot, the vibration breaks the already weakened filament.

Yes, over my island, and over my dinner table. That's the only lights that uses the 1076 bulbs.Both lights under the cabinet by the stove have stopped working and one over head light in the living area has quit working( burnt out ) also the reading lights over the recliners have stopped working, one at a time. Don't get me wrong, I am a fool about my Sandpiper, it's the nicest RV I've ever owned. Just wanted to see if any one else had the same problem.
