This is the light that used to show when the trailer was plugged in.


I gotta say, there is not a warning indicator light like that. I'm about 99% sure.
But when you scroll through the EVIC to the function that has that symbol (or similar), it displays the trailer brake setting and operation on the screen. Is that what you're referring to?

Nah, it's not that one. It's not a warning light so much as an indicator that the trailer is connected. When I would disconnect, there would temporarily be one like this.

My Yukon had a trailer like that when tow/haul was "on". I am almost positive that my RAM truck just says "tow/haul", and I have to turn it on, it doesn't come on automatically when there is a trailer attached.

On my 2017 Ram, it comes on initially in the center of the gauge cluster (where the digital speedometer and other info is displayed). It alerts you initially that the trailer is hooked up, but after that, it goes away.

It will come on again if you squeeze the levers on the manual brake for the brake controller.

Funny on the 2016 RAM SLT, I only get a message on the EVIC that trailer is connected and "Check Settings".

I'm pretty sure mine does exactly this as well. It also shows the "no trailer" light momentarily after disconnecting the trailer.
