Warmed up the 2002 Rav4L today, drove just fine thru town about a mile, got out on the Interstate, slowly built up speed to 65, turned on the cruise Control set at 67, drove about another 7 miles, the Speedom dropped to 0, engine still running fine, car starts to slow, losing power, now no gauges are working, in fact gauges are dark (not lit up), I pull over to the side, turn off on a side road, make a U and head back to home base, praying I get there. Speedom starts working, drives just perfect, all the way back.. Any ideas? 200k miles

Seriously, I could check for any codes in any of the modules. Check the battery terminals. Give them a good twist to make sure they are tight. Since the speedometer stopped first, yet you didn't notice any power issues until later, and the lights on the dash went out, I'm thinking something basic charging system but without testing it, I am only drawing on my experience.
