Default New house batteries - not charging?

Recently we replaced the original house batteries with the Trojan gels (purchased from Battery Systems in Seattle WA). We took the old ones out and put the new ones in and everything works - however on the electronics panel, the voltage readings are odd. When driving, the voltage steadily drops. When we turn off the engine, the voltage rises a small amount. This behavior was the exact opposite of the original batteries. We are wondering if they are not getting charged by the alternator. We are only running the fridge. Any ideas on what might be happening here?
