Here's what Dave Ramsey says about HELOCs, which is enough for me. YMMV:

Think of it this way. You’re using your home equity loan as an emergency fund. You lose your job, so you take out $30,000 to live on – it’s fine, since you have tons of equity in your home, right? Well, the end of the year comes and you still don’t have a job. The bank says, “Sorry, we’re not renewing your loan,” and they call in the $30,000. You don’t have it. They repossess your house. Any equity you built up is gone.
A fundamental lack of knowledge of how HELOCs work... the bank cannot "call in the $30,000".

I'm surprised he made such a rookie mistake but you're right!

They may not be able to call the loan but they can and have cancelled borrowers ability to take additional draws against the equity if they believe the home value has declined. If this occurred when a borrower had an emergency the funds may not be available and that's the risk, I believe. If you had a very large % of equity available the risk would be reduced.
