Default Remote Start

Guys have anybody noticed that there truck with remote start idles different until you put the key in. I have a 2012 F150 with a 5.0 engine. Maybe this is normal. I start my truck from the house and when I walk in my shop the engine idle a little rough until I put the key in the switch and turn it on then the engine is smooth as glass...

Never noticed this. Is your remote start factory installed? I use a factory installed remote start with a 5.4L and it idles fine.

Have you asked your local dealer if this is common? Never experienced this myself, but then I have never used it on a cold start.
