Question Wireless backup camera system

I purchased a well known wireless backup system for my 37' Raptor toyhauler. However, the rear camera constantly goes in and out of transmission. Explanation was because the hauler has an aluminum frame. Has anyone found one that works with an aluminum frame?

Garmin and other makers have a camera and transmitter separated by a power cord. Garmin sells extension cables to shorten the distance between the transmitter and receiver. (GPS) Some companies also sell signal boosters to send the signal further.

I had the same problem but was told by my RV dealer that the camera/monitor doesn't work on distances over 30 feet. I called the company that sells this product, described my problem so, without any other questions, they sent a booster antenna and about 30' of appropriate coax. I've installed the booster but have yet to hit the road but have tested it and it seems to work now. This may be your issue as well.
