With humidity levels fluctuating as much as you are seeing and getting down into the 40 and 50% range, this could easily be an issue. This would be too low for a tropical boid and could very likely cause respiratory problems, possibly leading to an RI. Even if your cage interior humidity is getting up to 70% occasionally, my guess would be that in the winter months, it is probably at the lower end of the range you stated most of the time. What type of gauge are you using to measure the cage humidity?
