What is the voltage at your battery using a dc voltmeter? Is this the bulb you are using? double contact? as in the link below or bulb has only one contact?

We have a 35ROK and have replaced two or three over the kitchen island but not much else.

Ok, 20 bulbs over how much time? Those bulbs "burn" hot and don't have a long lifespan (as in only 200 hours)..
.so if you tend to leave them on for long periods at a time, they won't last. Also, cheap bulbs won't have a good lifespan either.

Might be a case for LEDs.

2000 Cherokee 31BH, "flipped axles and raised",LEDs, solar, inverter, etc..aka "boondock ready". '07 Tundra 5.7L DC-LB, modded as well.

12v lights

20 bulbs over one years time, I'm a full timer so I use the lights every night. It's a 2013 model, and I have not checked the voltage. The bulbs have 2 contacts.

Is this high usage on a particular fixture...not too many fixtures that would be using a 1076 bulb.

Does the fixture has two contacts also or single? I'm asking because same bulbs will fit in single and two contact fixtures and create issues.

I thought that the bulbs with 2 contacts on the bottom have pins on the sides that are the same and single contact bulbs have offset pins so they're not interchangeable.
