HWH heat exchanger

I'm debating between a tankless and a 10 gallon Atwood with heat exchanger. I feel like there could be some fun things to do with the heat exchanger. Can you tell me about them? Is it possible to use the heat exchanger in lieu of a tank heater? What else can we do with it? Can you get an on demand hot water heater with a heat exchanger?

Typically, the heat exchanger in a RV water heater is to allow the engine coolant to heat domestic water while traveling down the road.

There is a thread here somewhere that describes installing a exchanger equipped water heater in a trailer, then using it in "reverse", to provide in-floor radiant heat.

I think that is a clever idea.


Regards,

JD
