Quick question: Hanging Tube off rear

Hi all, long-time lurker here. I was doing some general maintenance and noticed a tube hanging by the rear left wheel. Is this a concern, and does it attach to something, or is it a vent or some overflow?

We have a 2019 ACE 30.4

Yes, I checked the owner's manual

That sir is the vent tube for your axle.
Secure it up as high as you can, otherwise, stay out of flooded areas or your differential will fill up with water.

I for one am glad to know this. I never knew there was a rear axle vent . While you’re under there, check your differential oil. There have been posts stating there’s was dry from factory.
