Default Slight RPM bounce at idle?

I just picked up a new 2011 1500 quad cab sport a few weeks ago and ive noticed the rpms bouncing about 100-200 rpms when sitting idle, or when i turn the steering wheel it drops about 300 the shoots up about 400 (only when in idle), my friend says it does that when the steering pump draws power but it never happened in my old hemi? has this happened to anyone else? i dont want to have the engine torn apart... but it is under warrenty
Thanks

my idle when warm seems to be about 500. it seems low and because it's so low it can sputter a bit when the power steering pump draws some power off.

My 2011 does the same thing. I live on a steep hill and when I drop her down in low and crawl down when snowy, the truck speed which should be pretty steady, also fluctuates with the idle. Dealer could not duplicate my concern.

Mine bounces a bit too. I think your friend is right about the PS pump.
