I am trying to figure out if the tax write offs are different whether we get a home equity loan on our own house or a mortgage on the rental house.
You definitely want to deduct the interest as a rental expense. I believe that you can deduct the home equity interest as a rental expense as long as you have adequate tracking to show that's how the proceeds were used. Try Pub 535.
