Late reply but I would never use my primary residence to fund a rental property. I may be different but I viewed rentals as a business and separate. They needed to at least support themselves. And there is work involved.

Has your wife seen a net worth statement for the two of you ? It's a disservice to her to not work with her to understand your(couple) finances. What would she do if you got hit by a bus tomorrow ?

Speaking of which - how's the term life insurance on both of you ? ;)
