A 5 watt solar panel - no power required thus no power usage/expense.

Interesting thought in the solar panel. Do I need an inverter then?

Nope because the panel would be connected directly to the battery. You should have a solar charge controller on the panel though but if you are going for a small 5 watt panel just to keep the battery maintained when parked then you would only need a small cheap controller (under $25) to go with it.

But to be honest if you are going to use a solar battery to keep your battery pumped out while parked at home you may as well get at least a 35 watt or a bit more so its of some use to you when you go out camping without power.
