Radvd sending out too short router lifetime

I've been constantly losing IPv6 connectivity, and it looks like the culprit is the router advertisement lifetime sent by pfsense being on 30 seconds. A new router advertisement usually comes before that, but if it doesn't, I lose my default ipv6 route.
pfsense IPv6 is tracking a WAN interface going to Comcast. It doesn't appear that radvd is copying that lifetime, as its 1800s. The dynamically generated radvd.conf has no lifetime configured.
I keep my actual lease and LAN routes, and can ping the link scope/global scope address of the pfsense interface.
Is there any particular reason radvd would use such a short lifetime, or a way to force it to something more reasonable?

How often are you losing IPv6 connectivity/routing? I wonder if it's the same problem I am seeing with my LAN clients losing ability to route IPv6 to and from internet every few days. I thought I had checked the default route, but perhaps not. Next time it happens, I will check what the RAs are doing.
