2015 6cyl - is this normal, completely missing EPS wire?

So my wife has been saying the steering is rough - and it definitely is but doesn't feel completely manual (rougher than my colorado for sure). So quick youtube search tells me to check the 80 amp EPS fuse and ground.. I pop open the fuse box and something doesn't seem right here. Isn't there supposed to be a fuse here and furthermore, isn't there supposed to be a wire coming up (from somewhere - can someone tell me where) to attach to the fuse that's missing?

The V6 doesn't have EPS, it has hydraulic assist, the I4 does have EPS.

Thank you for the quick response! I was afraid I had broken it off when I replaced the battery last. Thank you again Dagorlad!

I guess I could ask... anyone have any ideas on troubleshooting the hydraulic steering if it's rough? (there are no codes being thrown and I don't think it's completely failing).

I would start by checking the fluid level.
If your fluid is dark you could try flushing the pump and refilling with new fluid.
Is your drive belt/tensioner in good shape?
If this doesn't help then a hose, the pump, or the steering rack would be next.
