Even when we did remove the tank and bulkhead for an inspection, we never crawled into the tail cone.
because of that, now we remove all screws above the level of the fuel tank, from the bulkhead. Then because the bulkhead is corrugated, you can roll/lay it back on top of the fuel tank and get a good look inside the tail cone.
The split baggage floor allows inspecting all of the control system (though it does require use of a mirror to check the portion that is located under the fuel tank... but very doable)
