It's my understanding that refrigeration units such as home and auto A/C must be operated periodically to lubricate system seals which keeps the system from discharging its freon. Will an RV refrig/freezer degrade in performance if stored for extended periods of time?

No. It is not a freon-based system, nor does it operate at high pressures or have the numerous seals of a compressor-driven a/c or household refrigerator.
