2016 MB Pro and LG 4k + LG 5k; issues using adjacent ports?

I have a new 15" MBPro and have both the 22" and 27" LG USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 monitors. I tried connecting both monitors, and interestingly when both are plugged into the R side of the machine, the smaller monitor would not light. It actually had to be plugged into a port on the L side of the machine - and then it functioned just fine.

Any thoughts on this?

i have the LG ultra fine 5K 27" on my MB pro 13 touch
love the monitor but have been noticing some quarks as well.

1. FaceTime always reverts back to internal ports - video, sound, mic
2. monitor does not always turn on on start up or from sleep
3. i am using the right side ports - which i do know are 'limited' in bandwidth but that is the way my desk is set up
