Is that a glass tube? If so, looks like some kind of sight glass, maybe to drain the water out through the floor, maybe checking for lime scale? It certainly looks interesting.

I think it is the optional water filter that is called the "water purifier" in the optional equipment for that year model. Look in section 16 in the owners manual, the winterizing section, where it is mentioned.
