I hope 68 Overlander (Randy, with Best Converter) chimes in here, but I believe that the 100 amp shunt will give you more accurate readings at the lower end of the scale.
I recently installed a 500 amp shunt on the Sovereign
, and I wonder if I should have gone with the 100 amp, since I don't think I will ever see much of a draw over 40 amps, and most of the time I should be in the 2 to 10 amp range.
I installed the shunt on the Negative Post of the group 27 AGM battery as close to the battery as I could locate it.
