Our 2000 DSDP does the same. It is good protection to prevent running out of fuel. Also a good idea not to use fuel from the bottom of the tank as that is where all of the gunk has settled and will plug filters quickly. This is common for diesels.
Avtually most fuel pickups are at or near the bottom of the tank-which allows for use of the entire tank and minimizes the potential for "gunk", etc. And even with the fuel tank baffles the fuel still gets mized up pretty well.
In my 2000 Dutch Star on a Spartan chassis with a 100 gallon tank the low fuel light came on with 30 gallons left in the tank. It ran out of fuel with 8 gallons left in the tank while driving up a hill. (Long story)
My 2005 DS with a 150 gallon tank has the low fuel light come on with 25-30 gallons left in the tank.
Don't worry about the fuel pickup sucking gunk when it gets low - doesn't happen.
