Can't manage remote firewalls through VPN tunnels

I have a Cisco ASA 5520 and two Cisco ASA 5505 device and have set them up for a VPN configuration.

The 5520 is at the main office and the two 5505 units are at remote locations and they initiate connection to the 5520 using EasyVPN.  Everything works quite well however what I have found is that I cannot ping or telnet into the remote 5505 units.  I can only ping or telnet to them from withing their respective local networks. In other words, in order to manage those ASA's, I would have to RDP into a computer with their secure network and telnet from there.  How can I do it where I could ping the internal IP of the remote ASA 5505 units?

Ok, this may sound weird...  I did what you said and it worked well.  I entered the conf, typed the command, exit, then wr mem.

It worked out great but then after an hour or so, I lost the ability to connect to it again.   I checked the conf and the line was gone.  I had to re-enter it again.  Is that normal or is it a bug?
