Looks like it. It would have had a cover over it to protect it. Should have a ''ding dong'' plate thing that is struck by a small plunger when power is applied. Pluck it with your finger. If it dongs, that's it.

As with any Airstream project, it helps to be a double jointed contortionist that can work sideways, or up side down, while wearing bifocal glasses. I propped the couch up with a stick made to fit which I keep stored under the couch for any such occassions, pulled out the big drawer so I could sort of step/sit/straddle it instead of taking the couch out.

Unless yours is very different than ours, you can pull out the gaucho relatively easily - remove the drawer, and move it out of the way, then unbolt the four bolts, and slide the whole out of the way. It's not as hard as it looks. I wouldn't do it repeatedly, because the bolts just go into wood as far as I could tell. The hardest part is getting the drawer back in, because you have to get it aligned perfectly, but even that's only a few minutes.
