Rear brake hose hanging

I have a 1996 F250 and recently had all the brake lines replaced with new SS lines. The brakes seem fine and I feel a lot of pressure on the pedal when I apply it.

When it started to get cold out my brake light would go on and stay on until the truck warmed up to operating temp. I didn't feel anything different with the brakes or notice any leaks.

They other day when it snowed I noticed that on the rear driver side connected to the axle there was a rubber brake hose that was just dangling from the axle not connected to anything on the other side. On the other end of the hose it had a plastic "V" plug that looked like only one side had an opening (not connected to anything). Even after driving the truck for a while the brake light never went out on the dash this time. I wanted to know where the other end of this hose should go and what it was for? I think I read it was part of the vacum system (I do remember that the mechanic had an issue tracking down a vacum leak and that was the initial cause of the brake light?)

Thank you for your help.

I dont have apicture with me but if it will help I can take one tonight.
