Why would I check the alternator for not getting power at all to the entire vehicle?

Oh I don’t know … perhaps a intermediate short in the internal rectifier.
BTW .. do you happen to know if the charging system is computer controlled and if so is it being commanded correctly?
Your losing main / secondary power across the board that kinda narrows the field as to possibilities IE main inputs / outputs to / from the battery, alternator and power distribution block.
