Blown fuses

Not sure if I'm posting in the right place but please help with a question on blowing fuses.
We are connected to 110. With 50amp service.
Why is it that the fuse panel shows a blown fuse for Kitchen lights.
Tried to replace the fuse but it immediately blew.
Why are we blowing fuses since we are connected to 110?
Thank you for any and all replies!

ALL 12 VDC devices (lights, pump, etc) are powered by 12 VDC whether you're on 110 or not. When NOT on 110, they receive 12 VDC from the battery. When ON 110, they receive 12 VDC from the converter (which is also now charging the battery). Disconnect the 110 and you'll probably still blow the kitchen light fuse. I suspect you've got a short in your kitchen light circuit OR your fuse is too small.

If practical, remove the light bulbs from the kitchen fixtures and see if the fuse still blows. It might just be a bad bulb.
