Door locks Apex 259BHSS

Anybody else having issues with door locks when sitting in direct sunlight for extended amount of time not functioning properly? mine were in direct sunlight while at a state park parking lot 92 degrees outside. They didn't seem to lock fully but tried and doors didn't open. I went to unlock the front one wouldn't turn to unlock. Went in through back door and sent the daughter to open front foor. When we got back home they were working fine again. I figured the internals got hot and expanded causing things not to move correctly.

One of my screws rubs the slide mech on the frame causing it to make my door stick. Lube the locks up with some silicone real good and make sure nothing is rubbing by looking at wear marks by the latch.

Will check that out. I have some graphite powder for locks I use on the house locks.
