2000 F250 blown starter fuse

I have a 2000 f250, 7.3L. The starter fuse keeps blowing on me. I have replaced the solenoid on top of the motor on the passenger side by the firewall, and the starter itself underneath. I have played with the grounds on the solenoid, and the dang thing keeps blowing. A new fuse will last about 8-10 starts before blowing again. If I try to replace the fuse immediately, it will blow constantly fuse after fuse. I have to wait about 4-5 starts before a fuse will work, and last. I turn the key on to warm the glow plugs, and then jump the solenoid on top using a screwdriver when the fuse blows to get it started. My battery cables are not loose, and the terminals/posts are good. All positive and negative cables coming from both batteries look to be in good condition. The fuse that blows is a 15A fuse location 20 under the dash. I don't see anywhere that there is a relay for the starter or starter motor. Any help? I am at a loss, and getting frustrated. Even slammed the hood, and the door.
