It can be quite small, due the the low amperage and high voltage. High voltage AC, distance is pretty irrelevant.
Likely 14 ga is big enough.
A 30 amp boats shore power is run through 10 ga.

Re: a/c water pump wire size

distance does not matter with AC. what maters is the current draw and breaker size requested for that pump model.

14/3 for 15a breaker and 12/3 for 20a breaker.
