As I suspected the bracket that broke was installed under a preloaded condition and it only took time for it to fatigue and break thereby compromising the rubber elbow and ultimate failure resulting in it to blow a hole. The mech situated the new bracket so it is in more of a relaxed posture and still supporting the air line.
Thank you all for your concerns and remarks, I will try to post some pics soon. Additionally, on my 38A you can only see this by pulling up the floor panel in rear.

Safe travels all!
Glad to hear you are up and running and it was minor. Thanks for all the detail, that's what the forum is all about, info. I crawled around under our rig just now using a flashlight and mirror just to see, and I can see how that bracket could be installed in a stressed manor.
