I got a replacement reverse light switch and it worked for a couple weeks but then the Fuze blew for the reverse lights. So I replaced the Fuze and now it blows when I put it in reverse everytime?

You have a short. You said reverse light switch? Is it auto or stick?

It's a manual. The reverse light switch is on top of the transmission and it's a button that gets pressed when it's put in reverse

Check the switch install. Sounds like someone may have pinched a wire somewhere. Do you know how to look for a short?
