Backup camera

I am looking for some advice on a backup camera for my 2015 jayco pinnacle 5th wheel. I have an rv garmin 780 and the bc30 camera is the compatible one for the gps. Does anyone have this and how is the camera lag time. The length from the back of the rv and the garmin unit on the dash is at least 55 feet. Any recommendations

I have the earlier 760 . I mounted the camera on the 5ers rear bumper running the wire ( has about 50ft & you splice it to transmitter) along the frame with screwhead zip ties. I maybe should have put it in Armor Flex conduit but no problems in over 4 years. I came up in my propane closet and attached sender there on the outside with power comeing from a toggle switch mounted by my auto level control. Our 5er is a 321RLTS about 35 ft & TV a crew cab dually Chevy . I saw a post a few days ago someone mounted camera at roof line and ran cable across roof but don't remember sender location
If there is lag time I'm unaware. I still really use my mirrors for backing mostly but do use for reference. Sometimes use it going down the interstate when I think an idiot is sniffing my rv bumper like a dog.

Do you have the wireless transmitter for your camera.

I have had the same set up since it first came out . Since I didn't want any interference or get frustrated I opted for the extension cable and the wireless transmitter
It has been up and running at distances of 57 ft with no problems
