the rtimer is indeed designed for repeated execution of routing blocks.
You can script ta way to enable disable execution of the route block by
having a condition on a shared memory variable, like:

route[RTIMER] {

  if($shv(rtimer)==1) return;

Whenever you set the $shv(rtimer) to 1, then practically the execution
of the route[RTIMER] ends without running your actions. The shv variable
can be set from any other part of the config and even via rpc command
from outside of kamailio.

On the other hand, you can just try to go with timer module if suits
better your needs. I just can't provide straightforward hints for it,
because I don't use it, but it should work.
