F53 2006 battery idiot light in dash

I noticed on my Monaco built on a 2006 F53 that when I switch the contact to ON, I have some lights like ABS, CEL, etc but no red battery icon like on my car.

Before I disassemble the dash to check the bulb, does someone know if it's normal and there is no light, or not?

Thanks, Fred.

If your dash cluster doesn't include an ammeter, I'd expect there to be an 'idiot' light to show when the alternator isn't charging. If you shine a bright light at the dash instruments, you may be able to tell where the battery symbol is. That will narrow down which bulb to check on the back of the cluster.

Magister54, here is the link to your chassis owners manual.
There is a Battery system light for "Charging system: Illuminates when
the battery is not charging properly."
