I believe if I'm going to use the straw to spray into the cavity, I can actually do this mod with a much smaller hole and then close it up with a small screw,....

I recently tried the Thetford valve lubricant......waste of money.

I used silicone spray and it worked perfectly.

When I googled White Lithium spray, I found a WD-40 White Lithium product. Standard WD-40 is petroleum based and cold damage the drain valve seals if they are rubber-based.

Unless I had clear evidence that the WD-40 White Lithium is not petroleum based, or that the drain valve seals are not rubber-based, but are made of something like Delrin or Teflon, I wouldn't use the product.

On the other hand, Silicone works and is safe.

That's Teflon, which is a solid lubricant. It isn't the solvent in the spray. The spray could still be petroleum-based.
