Auxiliary Coolant Pump

I am thinking of installing a separate 12v coolant pump in line with the hoses that feed my flat plate. Often, when I reach destination, I want to wash with hot water, but without the engine running, coolant is not passing thru the plate. With another pump, we would all be able to wash, even shower, with the heat still contained in the engine, if only the coolant was circulating. I'm wondering if such a pump would restrict the normal flow during driving, when the pump is off. Any other ideas?

Re: Auxiliary Coolant Pump

(Might be a little late. Just found this post this morning.)

Did you install it?
I have not noticed any negative impact on the cooling system.
This is one of the few items I listed was a waste. I have used it a few times, it does work but usually I find myself just starting the engine for a few minutes. What works great for showers is the remote start and stop feature on my key fob.

The pump and hose clamps has had a minor on-going leaking problem. I had to pull the gasket and seal it.
