Since you are losing everything, including lights, it has to be........

Bad battery. Intermittent internal open, probably on the ground post.

Try a known good one.

I run in to this every once in a while at the shop I work in. I agree you are losing electrical power. Check you grounds to your engine block and frame. Make sure your battery cable ends are solid and not curroded or broken. :welcome: Good luck

Agreed. Have seen many with an intermittant connection to the side post. If it is a dual post battery, the top posts may test fine, but the side posts may be open.
