While driving usually under 40mph, the electrical system shuts down and comes right up.
It will stall when this happens when idyling, but I am able to restart.

Radio shuts off, tach goes down to 0, speedometer drops to 0, then restarts right away.
Upon restart, the SRS red light comes on, radio starts, and meters resume at the speed it was.

Has happened when driven only few miles, or consistently after about an hour or so. I have a 1.5 hour commute. This week only happened on Thurs and Friday.

Try cleaning the battery terminal ends first to make sure there is a good connection. Then check belt and tensioner 60kis recommended replacement for both.
