Breather line?

Need some fast help my friends! My wife spotted a hose hanging down from the rear axle. The hose comes from a fitting on the rear axle with two break lines and I am not sure, but, it looks like it might be screwed into the axle....so I'm thinking this may be a breather line. At the other end of the hose there is a plastic fitting shaped slightly like a "V" where another hose looks like should be attached. Do any of you know where this hose goes to? I am on vacation with my wife and we will be on the road with our 32' 5th wheel in the morning. I don't think it will cause any harm driving with this hose as is, but, it would be nice to get it reconnected.

I noticed that breather line on my '04 the other week when installing my air shocks. The hose that comes from that "T" on the differential is a breather line and mine clipped onto the drivers side frame rail just above the brake line.
