Not sure if I'm exactly following what you wrote. But if I am only measuring 5 ohms, does that mean the compressor is drawing something like 25amps at 125Volts?

So since the compressor runs for a few minutes and doesn't just shut off when I temporarily hook it up the way That Guy suggested, I guess I'd like to check out how to hook up the 3-in-1 to see if it will run for an extended period of time. I can't seem to figure out how to hook it up correctly though. Any ideas on how to do it?

First crack at wiring it below. With this setup the light works inside, but the compressor doesn't start at all. The two lines labeled "P" coming out of the RCO are the black power lines.
