Hello, I am Randall, No way to lose all power to everything unless a problem at a battery connection or battery etc, as many things run directly off the battery, The fact that you can regain power and begin to crank engine leans more to a battery connection, With this said? you need to remove BOTH battery terminals, clean them with sand paper /file etc and wiggle them back on and I am thinking all will be ok, Another connection to check is the big wire going to the under hood fuse box, Where it connects to fuse box could be a bad connection so locate that and wiggle it by hand to see if power comes back,
