The only way the outlets are going to work is if you have an inverter. An inverter takes the DC battery voltage and makes the AC voltage when you are unplugged. Not all RV'S have an inverter they have a power converter which does the opposite, it takes the AC voltage and makes DC voltage and charges the battery ONLY when you are plugged in.

IF you have an inverter then there sounds like you could have a problem. IF you have the make and model of the inverter please let me know.
