Webasto coolant heater and heated seats.

Would it be a little anal retentive if I wired the webasto coolant heater so that if the key is in off position and the coolant heater is turned on the heated seats kick on. Once the key is turned on the relay switches and the normal in dash switch is used???

I warm my truck up for 20 or so minutes each morning and I thought about this the other day.

I'm assuming the heated seats draw a lot of power which would drain the battery pretty fast. There is an output from the heater that can be used to turn on the heater fan once the coolant is warm and that will heat the interior.

Or install a better heater. In half an hour with the webasto running my truck is toasty inside at -20
