ground issue isnt the right word. Blowing fuses means there is a short to ground somewhere in the circuit. Start simple and check all bulbs. Then find someone who knows how to troubleshoot electrical systems

I understand,I will start there. Where would I typically find the location of the circuit?

the part of the circuit that will have the problem is from the switch to the light sockets for your tail lights. Problem areas are any connections, at the sockets, where parts meet. Near any collision area. If a body panel or trim panel has been taken off recently start there.
