Of course.

You have to use this parameter in the configuration file:

# HnaValidityTime   15.0

Change on the node that announces this value on the
configuration file from 15 seconds to maybe 60 seconds.

This means that the default route is kept for 60 seconds instead of 15
even if no new refresh information comes in.

If 60 seconds is not enough you can try with more, but most likely the
links is too bad then.
