Matsushita compressor

I have 2004 Dutchman RV with a Thor A/c Unit. It has a Matsushita compressor with 3 Terminals marked RCS. Is it possible to jump 2 of the terminals to see if the compressor will run? I used to be a truck mechanic and could jump terminals on a 12 volt system to make it run but this is a 115 volt compressor and want to know if I can do the same to see if the compressor is still good! Thanks to all who reply in advance.

compressor

There is a round thing in the Common wire on the compressor connections. The compressor won't run. I am trying to find a way to jump the compressor to make it run and rule out a bad compressor. If I jump the capacitor, will it make the compressor run? Also I installed a service port for the low side and static pressure shows 120 psi or more. On a car, we used to jump the low pressure sensor with a paper clip and force the compressor to run but I can't do that here. Thank you for your reply!
