Description

In Services -> DHCPv6 Server & RA -> Router Advertisements there are some fields - Minimum RA interval, Maximum RA interval, Router lifetime - that have no values filled out by default.

My proposal is: either show what the default values are using greyed out text, like in System->Advanced->SSH port, or add a description that includes these values, like in field "Default preferred lifetime": "The default is 14400 seconds."

Secondly, while searching for "RA interval" in the pfSense book, there are no results.

It shows default values from services.inc
what about Router lifetime, from radvd.conf(5):

AdvDefaultLifetime seconds
 The lifetime associated with the default router in units of seconds. The maximum value corresponds to 18.2 hours. A 
 lifetime of 0 indicates that the router is not a default router and should not appear on the default router list. The 
 router lifetime applies only to the router's usefulness as a default router; it does not apply to information 
 contained in other message fields or options. Options that need time limits for their information include their own 
 lifetime fields.

 Must be either zero or between MaxRtrAdvInterval and 9000 seconds.

 Default: 3 * MaxRtrAdvInterval (Minimum 1 second).
