Downsizing house means I cannot take my fermentation fridge or my keg fridge.
I have sold my gear and have bought a Mk 4 Kegerator.
Question ; with the exception of brewers who live on top of a mountain, setting up line length and pouring pressure for a Kegerator should be standard to 99 % of Australian home brewers...shouldn't it?
Is there a guide to doing this without adding other variables ?

It should be!
There's a chart out there for the length:diameter ratio.
Personally I run 3M of 4mm ID line at about 12psi. Fridge temp is around 2C.
Pours a little slow but never get any major foam problems. (except when I forget to turn on the font fan) :)

i have done the same as @beergee

you are better off starting with long lines rather then short lines.

start with 3m lengths and cut the line back 50cm till you getthe desired pour
