Smart Shunt wiring re-wire

Having upgraded to Lithium and moving my coach battery bank to another compartment I added a Bluetooth Victron Smart Shunt. I have attached a diagram of how I wired it. My question concerns *wire #1 and *wire #2 . Should I leave them as is or reconnect them via the dashed line wiring-smart-shunt.jpg

Not clear to me what the blue dotted lines represent. But there should be no load connections between the battery and the battery side of the shunt. The isolator would normally be in the positive line.

Thanks for your reply. Sorry, the lines are a little confusing. The dashed lines represent moving the neg wires from the (#2) solar controller and (#1) the alternator /generator/jump start. Both amps in instead of out.. But, I want the info from them to show up on my monitor
