It seems like a long run of cable as I'm assuming the battery is either in the back of the U dinette or on the passenger side.
The length of the run for the monitor won't be a problem. It is a low current run between the shunt & the monitor that could run 10's or even 100's of feet without causing measurement errors.
On the other hand, the shunt run should be as short as possible, particularly between the shunt & battery.
