eGPU Not Detected If Monitor is already plugged in?

I've been looking around for anything about this problem, at first I thought the whole thing was a bust, so I guess I'm happy that I found out it just needs a small workaround (currently I have to manually plug the monitor everytime I plug in the eGPU, uncomfortable, but bearable.) 

So I guess i'm just asking if anyone has had the same experience and if so have they figured out a way to fix it? 

My setup

2017 Macbook pro
650W eGFX Breakaway Box
Vega 64 LC 

Connected to 

32" BenQ BL3201PT UHD Monitor 

through the Vega's Display Port to get a 4K60Hz transmission.

I have similar setup, and mine doesn’t require reconnecting monitors

2017 iMac 5k
Sonnet BB550
Vega FE/LC
LG 27ud68 x3

Mine handles hot connect/disconnect while i have one one all three monitors connects.
It does cold boot as well as restart just fine as well.

I don’t sleep my Mac, so I can’t comment on that. 

Have you tried different monitor?

Hi, I’ve got the same issue.
My setup is
Vega FE LC
Razer Core X
Dell S2817Q 4K monitor.

I have tested it with Lenovo Yoga 920, MacBook Pro 15 2017 and Dell Precision 7710. Need to unplug the monitor first before connecting thunderbolt 3.
