Default Flashing headlights

I understand the GT headlight fog light problem and was wondering. After I replace all the melted parts I was thinking about replacing the H3 with a LED H3 replacement bulb. Do you think this will cure the melting problem? I understand the LED will be not as bright as the H3 bulb. but I don't care. I live in south Florida where we get fog maybe twice a year.

From everything I have read its an overload on fuse #15. Why can't I just run another fused line to the light blue/black wire on the fog light switch? According the the wiring diagram the light blue/black wire is the in from fuse #15 and the tan/orange with is the out to the fog lights.
