Replacing Hydrahot with larger hot water heater?

Hello I have a 2003 Country Coach intrigue Ovation 42 ft bought new. It has a small (5 gal i think) hot water heater and and hydra hot to boost the hot water heat. In warmer conditions never need the hydro hot. I am losing coolant in the unit not sure where. But thinking about it, it looks like it only provides hot water and cold weather preheat which i have never used. We are not dry campers always in parks, so was wondering if it would make more sense to just replace the 5 gal heater with a same electric 10 gal and that would solve the problem. Not a huge fan of the hydro hot service it every year but still kind of smokey at times when running. we got along just fine in our 96 Magna with a larger electric water heater.

Like to hear others thoughts Or maybe someone else has done this

We have the same coach, 11630, bought new in 2003, and it has the Hurricane XL-45 heater with no additional hot water supply. Over-the-road heat is great and uses engine heat then. We changed some of the hoses due to slow loss of coolant, and it solved the problem. We do like to dry camp occasionally so it's a great feature then, and ultimately the resale may be better with hydronic installed. Good luck and safe travels.
