Depends on the size of the cable ya use. 6mm twin should cover it easy.

so long as the cable is heavy enough that you don't get much voltage drop. The total resistance from the battery to the fridge and back to earth (-ve) should not exceed 0.1 - 0.12ohms.

Keep it simple... a 3m extension made of 6mm twin will be totally fine.
