Cleaning while traveling?

RE: Cleaning while traveling?
The only failure I have experienced on the road is a power supply on the Airsense/Aircurve 10. I was able to buy a new one plus a standby. The breakdown is rare, and so far I have not traveled with the spare, but I might.

RE: Cleaning while traveling?
On the S9, I've left the power cord at home. Had the brick, but no cord.

Brought the wrong hose. I left the humidifier at home but forgot I'd need the regular hose. Duct tape to the rescue!

Make a list of everything you need. Machine, humidifier, hose, mask, power cord. Then check off everything as it goes into the bag.

Don't forget the bag! (did that once but was only mile from home)

RE: Cleaning while traveling?
I travel all the time so have two full rigs so I don't forget anything - don't think this is necessary for irregular travel

Cleaning - I take a small squirty bottle with baby wash and do the following

Daily - daily just pull out the water tank and drain and clean the inside of mask and the seals inside with a cpap wipe

Weekly - clean the hose, mask, elbow, water chamber, headgear with baby wash in sink, if been using bottled water then clean the water tank deposits of with 'Coke' then clean same
