Bulbs that burn out quickly can be caused by any of a number of factors:
  • Vibration.
  • Trapped heat.
  • Overwattage bulbs.
  • Moisture getting to the bulb.
  • Cheap bulbs.
  • Spikes in the voltage supply.
  • Leaving the bulbs on longer than you think.
Try buying bulbs marked "130v". Or buy bulbs from a major manufacturer marked as double-life bulbs.
