If your bass keeps going out of tune, your tuners are slipping. Take them apart and put valve grinding compound in them and it will create drag in the mechanism and your bass will stay in tune.

That's why many people prefer stainless steel strings. Your bass will now have a much better sound as well that sound engineers refer to as a "wet signal."
