ISC350 ribbed belt slack

How much slack is considered normal on a ICS350. I measured today and it's about a half inch in both directions, seems ok yes??

"slack" as you say isn't a way to check for correct belt tension. A 1/2" maybe ok, or maybe not.
The belt uses a spring loaded tensioner with a dampner to maintain a consistent tension on the system.
Not sure of the year model or miles on your coach, but the tensioner and belt are a maintenance item and should be replaced as a set.
Below is a very informative short video on the system.
