Loss of power to dash and ignition

I just had a situation I have not encountered before and hopefully some of you folks can help me figure this out. I have a Monaco Monarch with a Triton V10. This morning I went out to move it from under its shelter. It started right up then lost power to dash area and ignition and engine died. No dash lights gauges etc.. I bumped the Battery Boost switch and things lite back up and engine started. After running a couple of minutes it shut down again. I then checked battery connections and all electrical connections I could. All were good. Battery had full charge and posts were all clean. I hit the battery boost and it started again and so far has not done this anymore after having been started and restarted several times. Anyon ever had this happen and if so what was the fix? Thanks

If all the connections check out , I'd lean towards an ignition switch problem, poor internal contacts.
Repeated cycling of the key and applying extra battery power , may have cleaned the contacts to the point where they will work for a while.

Thanks for the reply. I have tried several more times to repeat the problem but so far things are working as they should. Like I said, I checked and cleaned everything. I just never had a situation like this one. It starts and runs fine, then just seems the electric goes away and it dies.

Does your keyring have a lot of things on it?

I've heard of people who have a lot of stuff on their keyring and the weight causes problems with the switch.
