Fundamental question: passing params

I maybe missing something here. I have an ajax’ed search form, parameters are passing correctly, but they are not showing up in the action.
I can see the parameters :
Request**
Parameters** : {“city”=>“Boston”,
“asearch”=>“category_id=2”,
“title”=>“Admin”,
“term_id”=>“8”,
“state_id”=>“3”}

When I try to get them in the action they are being directed too I get a nil./ nomethod error.

I think last week I had a problem where i was told that when there is a redirect to a different action the instance variable won’t carry over. Is that what’s happening here. I solved the last issue by saving the params to the session, but would prefer not to do that here.

TIA

Sorry David, it looked like this post never went through and there is a new one. I’ll call this one closed.
