Ok I understrand...a matter of adapters...I was interested a while back/before this post in a set up to hook up an electric house hot water heater to the RV in the back yard without having to burn up the propane for it.

Back in the day of riding motorcycles and sleeping in tents, we used to frequent a campground who had a shower house with a tin roof. The water heater was about 500 feet of black water hose coiled on the roof. You would be surprised how many people showered before all the hot water was gone each night.

I see a flow/pressure problem. You'll need to somehow reduce the cold water pressure coming into the coach otherwise with both inputs being at the same pressure the flow from the hose heater might not be much is any.

A better setup, but would require a more work, would be to use the black hose as a preheater for the water coming into the hot water tank. About what a solar hot water system does. Tape into the cold water side of the tank after the bypass valve. When you're using the preheat just close the bypass so feed water is only from the solar side.

The idea certainly works but the cost benefit would be marginal particularly if the coach water heater is dual fuel and you have camp site electric.
