I had my Actia panel replaced over a year ago and I love the brighter display. However I have had several occasions when I hear a beep then see the "Low Fuel"¯ warning and the fuel gauge drop to empty. After a few seconds the error message disappears and the gauge returns to normal. Sure startled me the first time but now I just wait for it to clear. Is this an Actia panel problem or a faulty wire or sensor?

It has only happened 4 or 5 times - always going down the road, no steep hills and I usually run with over a half tank.

It's a known issue with the IP. If you do a search you will find a bunch of threads concerning it.
The consensus seems to be a voltage transient is the cause. Actia has been "working" on the issue since 2004.

Mine has exhibited the problem four times in four years and 30,000 miles.

I have had my RV for almost 2 years and it has done it 3-4 times. Each time it was with a full tank and around 50 miles into a trip. Seemed to happen when accelerating, like out of a toll booth. gotta love Jersey
