Help with Broan HVL wiring

I am remodeling my bathroom and replacing the old HVL with a new Broan 100HL. Rather than use the Broan switch which has 3 switches in 1 gang, I am using a standard switch and a combo switch. I'm not sure my diagram is correct. Would a hot wire need to jump over to the combo switch? It seems to me that the combo switch won't have power in from the panel, therefore it would not have a circuit to break. I'm thoroughly confused and would appreciate any help! Thanks in advance!!

You are correct. Wire a pigtail from the hot wire to each switch.

The combo switch should only need one hot wire. One side should be common and unless you broke the tab off one wire will power both switches.

Thanks to both of you. The bridge/tab is still in place. One pigtail seemed like all I need to add, but I've looked at this so long I began to confuse myself!

Just my opinion but if I was doing it, I would put the light on the single switch and the heater and vent on the combo switch. The light will get used most and even if the switches are labeled people not familiar with the setup will be flipping multiple switches to get the correct one.

Edit: I just got out of the shower and realized that the vent could be on a timer switch (mine is). In that case it probably should be on the single switch. A wind-up timer would not require a neutral connection, an electronic one might.
