Keep blowing headlight fuses

The passenger side headlight keeps blowing fuses. Anyone know of the real cause of this? Already checked voltage and resistance at the headlamp connection. Seems to be good. Switch problem? How do I find it easily? Is my time better spent to have the dealer trace it for me so that I can fix it myself?

Check the wiring harness where it is tied to the headlight bucket. The movement of the headlight up and down can wear at the isolation causing a ground and blown fuse. Typically a bit of electrical tape and you arre good to go.

That was part of the original check and all seems fine there. Any other ideas?
