    Some do have rubber flex hoses attached to the metal lines. These usually have factory 'crimped' clamps holding them on as opposed to the normal looking spiral hose clamps you see in the parts store. Sometimes these rubber hoses are add-on equipment and not very well installed, so yes it's fairly common for one of them to "blow off" as you said...Same amount of pressure on both hoses!
