Leaving tapes in XL1S and zoom question

1. The manual states you should not leave tapes in the XL1S, is a time frame available, overnight, long term? I leave tapes in for several days at a time without adverse affects, should I not do this?
2. The last part of zoom seems to have a slow area, (possibly so the mechanism doesn't hit the stops at full speed, also, it is slow the very first part of panning back out, is this normal.
Thanks
Donny

1. A long time meaning more than 30 days or so. You risk stretching out the tape, and wearing out some delicate springs inside the transport mechanism.

2. Perfectly normal.
