Default Headlight problem

I have a 2011 RAM Outdoorsman. A month or so ago my right headlights quit working intermitently. I changed the bulbs on both sides and that helped. But now the right side is failing to come on some to most of the time. I checked the wiring as best as I could by reaching through that little flapper in the wheel well.
I think it's a bad ground somewhere but have no idea where to start looking.
Any and all suggestions will be appreciated. I'm getting close to trading it in. I haven't had any major problems,just nagging crap like this.
Thank you,
Frustrated RAM owner

Are you getting a good connection in the socket itself? Did you use bulb grease? This is where the fail occurs a lot of the time.

No, didn't use bulb grease. Haven't heard of it.
Thank you. I'll go check the socket connections again.
