The first Rheem/ruuds I ran into that reversed to cool. Were at a church. 2-10 tonners, and 1-5 tonner. At first I thought someone put an RV in wrong. Until I saw the wiring diagram.

The only Carrier heat pumps I remember that energize the reversing valve in the heating mode OLD units, and had no O terminal. The RV was energized by W1, were run by relay logic(lots of relays, both 24 and 240v), and had electromechanical defrost controls.
That one has bit me too.

Rheem/rudd. Common=x. C/O heat=B

It was burning up a contactor in 4 days due to chattering.
The unit energized the RV in the heat mode. Kind of confused me for a minute because X (brown) was common and Blue (which is labeled D on the board) is the RV turn on.
