Need Help with Siding

My disabled husband & I live in a single wide moblie home that was totally rotted. We will have it paid for in june.Texas has hot hot summers. it needs to last longer than we do!!! A friend put up new obs11 siding. He has had to go back to work so us and our grandsons have to finish it .We bought Valspar solid color house and trim stain-natural cedar. The can has oil/acrylic-water repellent. It cleans up with water. We painted it on the underside before we put it up.Question is will this work on outside? When would we caulk the seams? We got the stain at Habitat store in San Antonio. We live 30 miles from there. We have very little money and it was cheap. I have to sigh out to use phone. I will look for reply's in 1/2 hour. THANK YOU FOR HEARING ME Leslie

i'd caulk before painting, (wait a day before painting/staining) also, check the can(s) of Valspar and see if they say for exterior use or interior only. (why did you paint the backsides?)
