Default hanging things on siding

I got one of those plastic outdoor sinks; I imagine it will end up
being too heavy to just hang off the vinyl siding, so I assume I need
to drive some long screws into the underlying side of the house. I have
no idea what's under the siding. Is it worth a shot, or should I do
exploratory surgery first?


Gees, will people never stop conjuring stupid
ideas. Why would anyone ever hang anything on the
house siding? Oh, I know, just forget the purpose
of the siding and since it is a big more or less
flat surface attach something to it.

Put a couple of post down, and hang the sink on
them instead of puncturing your siding and who
knows what else.
