Left dolly light keeps busting

The last three times we went to Florida, our left tow dolly light has busted! Yet there seems to be no sign of damage to towed vehicle, and it sets very close to light! Could there be some kind of vacuum created when an 18 wheeler or something goes by. And cause it to implode? has anyone heard or know of such a thing?

The lights on my dolly kept blowing. It got old in a real hurry. I changed them out with LED fixtures. Havent had a problem since.

Thanks IMDSailor. Actually what I should have said is that the whole housing and light flat out shatters!

I know this post is a little old,and the problem may all ready be solved.But !First,check for loose fasteners,make sure every thing is tight ! Get you a rubber mallet and tap on the fender or frame next to it.Use different directions,degrees of force.In my opinion you're looking for a vibration,it exerts/or sets up with sufficient amplitude/motion to trash your light. Hope this may help with your problem.
