Sounds like you know what your doing. One thing I would try is to put her on heat tape. I keep all of mine on tape. I started out w/ a setup like yours but found I got better eating response when they were on tape. Warm her up just a little more, some snakes do better with a higher temp. as well as some do better w/ cooler temps..Of course have a cool side still. I keep water in w/ my boas, if they are thirsty they'll find it. I soak too, not as often as you but if I have a boa that looks a little drawn out, I soak.

Another thing to think about is if she is regurging as often as you say you should keep her seprated from all other snakes. And don't mix up waterbowls, soak tubs things like that. She could have a parasite. See if the heat helps before you worry about that though.
Good luck,
-Dell
