Pretty much what the title says: Under the master bedroom platform I can see the metal enclosure that surrounds the generator. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to move the mattress and platform out in order to even try it, so I figured maybe I could save the trouble if it isn't going to work anyway.

Just looking for a more convenient (possible?) way to change the points, rear plug wire, etc.

I don't think you are seeing the metal enclosure. I think you are seeing the floor and the metal barrier between the floor and the undercarriage, THEN, you might have the enclosure. You have to have access from outside through a cabinet door?

NO access to generator from inside as fumes would be a bad thing
