True induction Cooktop

My tru induction Cooktop on my 2015 DSDP seems to be working only at half power.
Even when using one burner to boil water it takes forever and never boils.
Any ideas as to what might be the problem

What kind of cookware are you using ? It requires high
iron content and must be magnetic. Aluminum pots
with a grid of steel on the bottom do not often perform well.
Put an cast iron Lodge Brand pot on it and see what it does.
If that does not work, then something is wrong with
the cooktop.

If your True Induction cooktop plugs into an outlet (not hard-wired) you can use a Kill-A-Watt to see how much power it draws. From fading memory, a single burner on the highest setting should draw around 1650 watts. If not, your cooktop has a problem.

I second the recommendation to make sure you're using induction ready cookware. If you are, try flipping the breaker for the cooktop off for a few minutes and then turning it back on to reset the electronics. The breaker for ours is in the midship half bath.
Also, are you on 50 amp shore power? If only on 30 amp, if you're running AC or other high drawing things, it may not be getting all the power it needs.
