Prove it. Then show how simple, IF you manage to prove it, that it can be overcome. You know not of which you speak. This has turned into a troll fest.

Why not post a schematic somewhere for him? A pic's worth a thousand words ... or more. Unless, as your antagonistic and childish approach is showing, you're nothing but a kiddie bag of hot air.

You're making it even more obvious what you don't know. Because you don't know how to do something is no reason for you to attack others who might be on the right track. Your concepts of how relays can work is in bad need of help also. When you have nothing worthwhile to say, that's what you should say: Nothing.

If you had a transfer switch it would be alot safer on the equipment, a cheap one wont do what you want but will have 2 watt meters so you know the load and can balance it. They are cheap and easy to install many are prewired. Generac has one prewired with exterior baox cables plugs tec for about 300, I got mine free at Lowes with a cheap gen.

Simplest would be to attach a 120 Volt NC (Normally Closed = ON) relay to the compressor's two electrical feed wires. When the compressor is running, the relay is activated and its contacts are open (=Off). When the compressor has stopped, the relay closes and lets the sump pump, e.g., run.
What you are seeking is akin to this http://www.kk.org/cooltools/archives/001087.php but with a reverse action. You could purchase a strip like this and plug the frig into its power sensing socket. A NC relay could then be plugged into the controlled sockets. Would do the same as above but save you the trouble of messing with the refrigerator wiring.
