On a similar note....I am looking at removing my hot water heater for a couple of reasons (it is old, large and in the way and more importantly, my fresh water system is defunct...). Anyway, upon looking at the setup, the engine coolant expansion tank is connected to the hot water heater (I assume to help heat the water while away from shore?) and as such I got a little timid about removing the heater. My question is, do I need the hot water heater for some reason? If not, do I just bypass the heater and hook the 'out' from the water heater tank back to the expansion tank?
That sounds awfully simple and most of the time when something is simple it is wrong...
