I reviewed at the screen caps. VGA Display in this instance seems to be the MBP's internal display. You can see the Radeon Pro is powering the LG 5K and this VGA/Internal display.

   

Unfortunately, it's not the internal display. The screenshots above show 3 displays connected to the Radeon Pro 460: Color LCD (the internal display), LG UltraFine, and the VGA Display. The 4th display was connected to the 1080 called "NT Headless". Also, when the LG UltraFine is disconnected, the VGA Display disappears.

Gotcha. I'd say to uninstall the script and connect the 5K to see if that VGA display would disappear. (add flag -uninstall at the end when running the script).

Yep! Doing the -uninstall flag removes the VGA Display!

So I tried uninstalling and reinstalling and the same thing occurs. When the 5k Display is plugged in, there is a third (or fourth if internal display is active) VGA Display showing up. Any idea what could be causing that or how to remove it permanently after the script is run?

I have been experimenting with the automate-eGPU.sh script. When I run it with "-skip-agdc", it does not create the phantom VGA Display. But, the eGPU doesn't work either.

I know what you mean. Akitio has another pcie box which has two TB3 but aiming for SSD so you can use the node's power to connect the mainboard with two TB3
