Sorry, what exactly is reversed? I don't see it. What picture/URL?
EDIT: Ah, I think I know what you're talking about. You're referring to this wiring diagram:
And these pictures:
The diagram is correct: The HLT PID goes to the HLT SSR, the BOIL PID goes to the BOIL SSR.
I think you mean that in my physical panel the HLT SSR is on the right but in the diagram it's on the left, then yes, you are right. But that doesn't matter as all the parts are labelled. I draw the pictures to avoid having wires crossing all over the place (which is even more confusing IMHO). The PIDs from left to right in the diagram match what's physically on the door when it's open.
If I swap the HLT and BOIL SSRs in the diagram I would have to swap the two PIDs too which would then make them *not* match what's physically in the enclosure. Right now the PIDs in the diagram match (from left to right) what you see in the enclosure door when it's open.
This is really really importantl: The diagrams are just that: Diagrams. They do not represent what's physically in the enclosure nor do they represent positioning. Items in in the wiring diagrams are drawn so as to make wiring as clear as possible by avoiding cross wirings as little as possible. The diagrams and labels MUST be read carefully! Don't don't anything quickly! Don't assume anything. There's no quick references here! Again, don't do anything quickly or you'll make mistakes! Go slowly and read everything twice!.

I see your point. I did check everything twice and wired it three times to be sure. But a as a quick reference in hooking up my SSRs last night after reinstalling my back plate I noticed that they looked reversed. Just thought I would point it out.
You are correct, don't use it as a quick visual reference, check labels.
