Terry,

Have you tried connecting the displayport-connected display at the end of the thunderbolt chain?

I have two OWC Thunderbolt IV enclosures between my computer and my second display it works like a champ.

I don't own a Thunderbolt display either. I connect a mini-DP cable to the last connector open on the daisy-chained Thunderbolt enclosures. My other display uses the HDMI connector on the CPU.

I would expect that a mini-DP to DP cable would allow you to use only one connector on your MacBook Pro for the dock, with both displays connected to the dock.

It doesn't. Mini Display port adapters are not supported unless the display itself has a display port. So converting from HDMI or DVI to display port doesn't work.

I have a 4K display on order that has both display ports and HDMI.
