Just remember to size the wires accordingly. Longer length runs require larger diameter wires from the converter to the battery. Gaining access to the existing wires to upgrade them could be problematic.
To determine the correct size wire to use, you will need to know:
1) Maximum charge/discharge current you expect (about 30 amps)
2) If you need to power an inverter and where it could be placed within 18 inches of the new battery location (Inverters need about 150 amps)
3) How far from the new battery location to the inverter. Remember to add for all the bends in the wire run and not just a guess.
Then use a wire sizing chart to buy the correct diameter red and black wires to use from the battery to the Converter.
