Intermittent power loss

I have an intermittent loss of power to the gauges, radio, and doors on a 2004 F-350 6.0 diesel 4x4. It acts like a breaker is tripping but the only breaker in the fuse box is for windows only. Any help?

Not entirely sure what the issue is, but with something that is intermittent I usually start with ground connections and then look for shorts. The cab to frame ground is under the passenger side front door. Inspect closely and clean both connections. I even piggy-backed mine with #4 welding wire. The cab to block ground is from the passenger side rear of the cylinder head to just above the HVAC box on the firewall. Again, inspect and clean mounting surface. Battery to frame grounds are under the OEM air filter and beneath the passenger side battery box. Removing the front bumper is easy and really helps with accessing.
