I'll definitely try a chuck roast next time
Nope. Chuck won't help you. It's a more flavorful cut, but it's not going to be any moister.
Best I can suggest, since you're insistent on using the old crock....
Layer 1/2 an inch of veggies on the bottom TIGHTLY. Put the roast on top, in the center. STUFF vegetables on all sides - like until you can't fit anything else between the meat and the sides of the crock.
THEN add only enough (preferably dense) liquid to cover. It will be significantly less liquid than you usually use. (say that three times fast)
Put a piece of foil on top of all this. Doesn't matter where it falls in relation to the cover, it could be 4 inches down, you want it right on top of the whole conglomeration, and make it big enough to pack it in tightly.
That should help the next roast be much more juicy.
