As far as I understand you have a telerik:RadAjaxPanel on the page along with the user controls. As long as both user controls are wrapped in the telerik:RadAjaxPanel they should update each other as expected.
Please find attached a very similar scenario - each user control contains a RadTextBox. Clicking on the button will update the second text box with the text typed in the first text box.
