There are no differences between any of these force fields with respect to RNA. 
  There have been many RNA-specific adjustments made to AMBER RNA parameters to 
improve its structural and dynamical properties, though I do not know if any of 
them have made it into GROMACS format yet.  The most recent AMBER14 force field 
is probably the best bet.
