Slides "relaxing" a bit after retracting

When I put The Prairie Schooner in the barn, I make sure the slides (I have four) are run all the way in. The next day each one "relaxes" about a half inch, but will tighten up when I toggle them in until the motors stop (approx. 3 seconds). This will happen every couple of days. It is hot in Cajun Land right now so this might be a factor. Any thoughts?

I believe there's an "end stop" adjustment on slides. Perhaps all you need to do is get them adjusted slightly to prevent the "relaxing".

Are they hydraulic? My hydraulic slides will creep out in the heat. I suppose the fluid is expanding. Doesn't happen in the winter.
