Issue with Reese 18k elite slider, maybe bolt loose.

Just got a 5th wheel camper and since I had a short bed f250 I had the reese RE elite 5th wheel slider put in. i noticed when 2 bolts that were loose that had nylock nuts on them and wasnt 100% sure if they were suppose to be or not. I went over the manual and a bunch of videos online and never seen any info about them. They are on the bottom of the hitch, 1 on each side. They sit in a little channel and can move back and forward.. Here are some pictures.

Don't know anything about that hitch, but when a bolt is in a slot, and is supposed to move back/forth, would defeat that purpose if tightened so it would not move. Now, if it is an adjustment bolt for positioning, then it should be tight when in proper position.
This is completely a guess on my part.
