Thanks Nate, I have to plead ignorance here, is that something different than that housewrap I put on?
You want something that can maintain an air space behind the siding to ensure that it is able to dry. This can be done with furring strips, or arguably, with "bumpy" housewraps.
Googling "rain screen" or "drainable housewrap" will give you some results that show what I'm referring to. This is important on any "reservoir cladding," as in a siding that can hold moisture. (ie: not vinyl, but wood, cement board, brick, etc)
Not sure how arid your climate is, you may get away with what you have there depending on what your wetting events are like.
