Thanks a lot for the quick replies! Lastly can someone explain why longer tubing is better?
Long lines mean a less turbulent trip to the glass which means less gas is "knocked out" of the beer. A short line and a highly carbed beer would mean foam, and since the co2 goes into the foam, the beer is seemingly undercarbonated but in reality is overcarbed.
I have 10' lines on my kegerator at 40 degrees. I started with 6, then went to 8, and finally went to 10. I get perfect pours now on all taps.
