Porch light

The porch light on my Wildwood only last a day or two. It's on a few hours at a time when plugged up to shore power. Is that normal or is there an issue of some sort?

I had the same issue years ago.
Porch light 1 bulb draws about 1 amp
Times 8 hrs x2 = 16 amp taken out of battery. If batteries are weak and other things are running ......
I swapped my porch light and vent hood light to LED's, they only draw approx. 1/10 of an amp/hr.

Are you saying the bulb burns out, if that is the case probably a poor ground.

Yes the bulb burns out. It's only 6 months old I hadn't considered the ground. I'll check that out.
