Welcome to the forum.
I recommend to start with that you disregard the XW6048 and its companion 600 Volt MPPT controller as well a all other equipment choices until you have some sort of design for your system, beginning with how much power you need to supply. Without that figure to work from you will definitely be spending your money unwisely.
As for shortened battery life do to non-use, this doesn't really happen. How long will you be leaving it for and at what time of year? I walk away from mine for six months of Winter and when I return it is fine and functioning. You just shut off the inverter and leave the rest to keep the batteries charged. The combination of cold ambient temps and short sun hours actually work to preserve the batteries; lowering the chemical activity and reducing the charging to a minimal maintenance level.
