Yeah, I was thinking about how much I hate alcove tubs, and how poly doesn't seem ideal in a situation where there is space between the tub and the studs, the CBU doesn't overhang the flange, and you try and secure the tub to the studs.
In a previous remodel I trusted my ability to hang a sheet of nylon but didn't trust my ability to correctly apply the membrane. Since then I have applied it on a floor and a niche without issues.

1. If the poly is out, and redguard is in, the kerdi-band is in as well right (for the CBU that is flush with the flange)?

2. If the kerdi-band is back in, then back to the original question, do I need to apply it to a redguard'd back wall where the CBU does overhang the flange?
Much like this project, my posts are still under construction
