I don't totally understand, but your valve is soldered to both stub-outs "shower head stub-out" and "tub stub-out"

Isn't there something just a little weird about that concept?

Why wouldn't you just install a personal handheld shower head from the spout?

this tub shower valve has threaded ips otlets on all four sides. No sweat copper in this house,,,will be all pex. Using brass pipe for tub spout. guess if they dont have swivel pex fitting I can use a compression fitting. or use pex and splice it later if necessary

NO hand held personal shower heads allowed here. Ever see what people spray? I want the water to stay INSIDE the tub

Most RV tub/showers are set up like what you want. But you might not like the look of an RV faucet in your house - most are plastic and not very durable.
