Solar is the way to go to keep the batteries topped. However, you can't skimp and you'll need a place to install them.
Most marinas are no-discharge these days, so you'll have to pump out your holding tanks, if you use the heads aboard. That's not a real big deal, if you're heading in and out anyway. On that last day, where you're not leaving till the next morning, we avoid the onboard heads. If we used them, the waste would either sit there all week or we would have to go over to be pumped out again. PITA.
