    Ok. I was wondering what that was. And now I know. I couldn't find any info on it in the service or the install manual for the unit. I knew it couldn't be the txv because you have to pull the coil out to get to it.

    That was one of Rheem's dumber ideas for charge compensation. It took so long for the refrigerant to collect in the compensator that the system would go out on high head.

    I believe that was the RCQB model.
