Hi Victor and welcome. One easy way to do it is to take a 5/16" drill bit or keystock (anything that is 5/16" thick) to measure it. Lock the router with the bit level with the base and just touching the work surface it's on. Turn the turret to its lowest position under the depth stop rod. Place the 5/16" gauge between the depth rod and the turret and lower the rod and lock it in place. That will give you the final cut. If you have fine adjustment screws in each step of the turret then without moving the rod turn the turret and adjust the screw until a gauge of appropriate size fits between the depth rod and the turret screw. If you don't have fine adjustment screws then you are stuck with what the turret gives you or you can go through the same procedure as the initial setup for each step.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

there is no adjustment screws on the turret only a rod for the adjustments on the router and there adjustments are 1/4'' to 3/4'' so the way it is set up for this router only 3 adjustment per cut if you use this turret so have to adjust each time for diff. cuts tried to take it back went pass the 30 days called dealer they said u can return it for the same thing thanz 4 help

Victor there are a lot of unknowns here. In a lot of wood cutting a 5/16th in one pass is very doable. Wood such as pine, western cedar and others. Very hard wood might take two cuts at the most. Also a lot depends on what router bit you are using and the size and quality of the bit. A 1/8th bit is very fragile while a 1/2" bit will be stronger. Maybe some pictures would also be helpful. The more information we have the better answers you will get.

page 23 of the manual provides instructions for setting more than one depth of cut using the turret system. Setting the final depth is done on the lowest turret position and up to two lesser depth cuts on the other two positions.
If you are having getting the drift of the procedure I suggest a search on you tube where you will probably find several illustrations. I am sorry I don't have time right now to search for a link.
Good luck.
