Sounds like you have some major fuse blowout issues. Ther are fuses under the dash, and fuses under the hood. But before you play with the ones under the hood, be sure to disengage the battery terminals. Check all the fuses. Check out the fuse layout to ensure you have all the ones you need. Can get replacement fuses at any autozone or whatever. This is the cheapest and easiest start to finding out your problem. It is time consuming, but you may also find out any other problems before they hit you at a later time. IE, for ford explorers, there has been a problem with the rear wiper motor going out and causing a battery drain that will kill it within 24-36 hours if the fuses are not pulled for the rear wiper motor. Hopefully this helped some. If not, I am sorry to say it may be a more expensive fix. Sounds electrical, I know autozone will do a free power diagnostic check on the truck. After that, good luck!

Dashboard lights and gauges go out, windows won't work

Your alternator is out. Those are classic symptoms of alternating going out. The alternator recharges your electrical system and when it goes out a list of strange things go on inside the dash, and you won't be able to go very far on just a battery. I'm glad you at least made it home. But yes you will need a new alternator for sure. Please rate this response so I can get my ratings back up to 90% at least.

Got water in gas tank, now will not accelerate, is idling low. Speedomoter and RPMs not working. Engine revs up to 3 RPMs when going about 40 and seems to ge stuck there. Says doing 40 but feels like I'm...

It almost sounds like an electronic problem (i.e. ECU). I don't think it would be a fuse because you wouldn't have anything at all. Sometimes when the instrument cluster starts to act up, you'll get a lot of problems with the engine running. In this situation, I would get the car checked out from a Ford dealer before things get worse.

Oil gaug

GM Had A Recall Issue W/Dashboard Cluster, Speedometer ... Etc ... I Would Goto Your Dealer And Say That. But If You Don't Have A Warrenty Or Such, If Your Familier W/Your Truck And We All Are .... You Know That That's Just HopeFully A FAULTY Dummy Gauge As They Refferred To Them In The Ole Day... But If You Reg Change Your Oli @ Every 3000-5000 Miles As Suggested, You Know Exactl;y Where Your Truck Is, I WAs Recommended The Same Thing, But My Fix Was To Just Install A Aftermarket Oil Pressure Gauge, Which they Are More In -expensive Then This New Gauge For You Dashboard Oil Light.... Unfortunately But They Are Twice As Reliable, Hope Any Of This Was Of Some Help, James W
