Help! Why do my potatoes stay hard ( RAW ) in the slow cooker / crock pot?

I have heard that you must not "shock" the potatoes. So no hot liquid poured over them. I have also found that a sudden acid bath makes them hard in spots so if you are cooking them in tomatoes, precook them! I read this tip somewhere... I believe I heard the "shock" tip on Rachel Ray's 30 minute meals.
