Good morning, sorry for delay, my name is ***** ***** you for asking your question, I will try and help you out.
Dipstick heaters don't last I would install a oil pan plug heater click here
The heaters you have that keep failing, usually will keep failing if they are plugged into a long extension cord or the outlet they are plugged into doesn't have enough amps,,you should have them connected to a 20 amp outlet and use a heavy gauge extension cord if needed. The longer and thinner the cord reduces amperage and will keep burning them up.
Depending on how cold it gets where you are at if you install both types of heaters (coolant and oil) they will not have to work as hard and will last for years.
