It sounds like you want some form of liquid quick disconnect on the collar, allowing you to remove the lines if needed?

As you aren;t hearing the relay click, I doubt your wiring is the culprit. Most likely the "problem" is the compressor delay.

I have a 3 tap kegerator that I'd like to re-plumb the gas lines. I dispess each keg with (possibly) different pressures. Currently I have a primary regulator with a wye fitting, one side goes to...
