I'm no expert, but first of all, you need to move the
run_rc_command $1
outside of the if statement, or else no command will be performed.
Just move it to the bottom opf the script, like so:
run_rc_command "$1"

As for the conditions you have inside the if statement, perhaps you can make a
start_precmd function, and put the stuff in there?
See for example
for examples.
