Look for a short in the reverse lighting circuit, since activation of that circuit seems to be blowing your fuse. The advice to start with a schematic is an excellent way to start. Look for a ground on the fused side of the circuit whenever your back up lights are energized (shifting into park --which energizes them briefly and of course, reverse.) You'll need a multimeter or lighted circuit tester to accomplish this.
