Square D was asked the factory to clarify the procedure to install a piece of 3R equipment and ensure that the drain is provided. Here's their response regarding safety switches:

Nothing has to be done to the 30A - 600A NEMA 3R switches. Their drain provisions are designed into the bottom endwall. The 800A - 1200A have a screw in the bottom endwall that is removed and discarded. There is a label by the screw telling the installer to remove it.

Some of our starters are supplied with a 12/3R enclosure. These enclosures must be field modified to make them 3R from 12. These instructions are provided on page 16-95 of the latest Digest.
