Okay so over time and I guess through the cold weather my bolts have come loose. I've tightened them down and it's about 48 degrees right now. When the weather gets hot will these bolts be too tight? Also.. are these the bolts that hold the home to the frame?

Usually what happens is the wood dries out and shrinks over the years, that is why they loosen. It is more of a shrinkage issue not a loosening issue.
