If you don't have anything else plugged into the fuse block, chances are there's a short. Where it is I can't exactly answer. See the orange wire running over to the headlight switch? That's the tail light wire. That wire is also tied to other things if you look at the schematic.
Suggest, as a test, replacing the fuse with a light bulb and socket. Wiggle around wires and see if you can get the light to light up.

I had a simialr problem with tail lamp fuses blowing out. It turned out to be corroded fuse clips. The extra resistance caused the fuse and clips to make heat that killed the fuses. Check yours to see how hot it gets with the lights turned on.
