Question When the heck is my first Service???

I got my 2013 Ram 1500 about six weeks ago. I was reading through the manual and in the maintenance section it shows the maintenance schedule starts at 20,000 miles! Surely, this is not when I take it in for the first service, is it? I hear some say change the oil at 1000 mi but I haven't seen that or any mention of an initial service until the oil life indicator says I am due for an oil change. I wonder if anybody has seen or heard anything different.

On a side note, the Ram owners manual writers could have done a better job.
