using an ohm meter, unplug actuator, check for short to ground starting at fuse box, possibly where harness goes through fire wall? electrical gremlins can be a nuisance to find. stay calm. try to get a wiring schematic, and a wire loom diagram. be systematic about it. don't give up.

I agree with stump! You have live touching ground. You could unplug your actuator & see if you still pop fuses. Disconnect your battery, Grab an ohm meter & connect from the live wire at the actuator to ground. You should not get a reading. If you do, follow the wire back & look for a melted coat, cut coat or anywhere that it might be rubbing on the body of your vehicle.
