If you are replacing fuses, then it's highly probably that you are pulling to many amps.

Invest in a clamp meter and figure out how many amps you are really pulling. (There are several threads on clamp meters and kill-o-watt's in the forums.)

You didn't mention what kind of lights you are using, but it sounds like you might be violating the 3 strands end to end rule!:shock:
(Which will cause your fuses to blow in a set closest to the power source)

If this is the case the solution is to run an extension cord if needed so you can re-arrange your power and keep from having more than 3 strands of light plugged end to end.;)

Are you replacing just the fuse in the strand or the whole cord too? Try replacing the cord, maybe there is a short somewhere. Especially if you are going over that 3 set rule Terry mentioned.
