Angry total electrical failure

I lost all electrical in my 1986 chevy last night on the freeway.
It went totaly dark, no lights no starting, no anything.
after towing me off the freeway they checked the battery and it
has a full charge.

Is there a master fuse that has gone out, I hooked up the battery charger directly to the posetive on the starter and the negative to the block, bypassing the battery cables and nothing

need help

Check Joe F's postings for the basics!

Is your starter solenoid shorted or burned?
I'm not sure what kind of '86 Chevy you're driving. (towing??)
Follow your hot lead from the starter solenoid back to your chassis. Usually, the old chevys had a junction block somewhere along the firewall. The block could be burned. Also, a lot of the leads connected to the junction block are fusible links.
