If the valve at the tub is a pressure balance valve the valve has to sense hot & cold water pressure to operate. If you have replaced 3 water heaters in 5 years you have a problem that needs to be address. Something is causing the premature failure and it's being over looked.
Did you open the farthest fixture when refilling the lines with water to blow the air out the system ?

Opened all the hot and cold water fixtures, once the main was back on and the water heater filled I started shutting off faucets... Thats a water waster! The proportioning valve on that tub wasn't working at all (wouldn't even run cold water through it) when I had the hot water lines shut down to install the water Htr... I'm by no means an expert about how proportioning valves are supposed to work, but wondering if it could have something to do with that old faucet proportioning valve???
