Short Circuit

I have an '85 190E that just started exhibiting strange behavior. After I start it and turn on electrical things(radio, headlights, reverse lights) the headlights dim for a second and the radio blanks out. I shift into reverse and the same thing happens. If I start to drive and then hit the brakes, it loses electricity again. It usually straightens out after a few miles. I haven't checked the fuses yet. Are all those things on the same fuse? I don't lose total power, it's almost like a brown-out...
