The door bell button, (switch), is the same as most homes have.
Carefully, slip a sharp edge object under the chrome ring, and give it a little twist, and the switch will come out. If it corroded it place, then you will have get a little more serious with the removal.
The chime box, or bell, should be mounted behind the front lounge, on the wall.
If it's history, a replacement can be obtained from Home Depot.
You will find that the chime box operates on 24 volts AC. That means it will also work on 12 volts DC. That's why Airstream used them.
All you need is whatever chime box sound you like, as long as it operates on 24 volts AC.
And of course, replace the door bell switch, which is very common.
