I have a 2023 Trail Boss, and I put an IR gun on the seats and on the high setting the highest temperature I saw was 70 degrees. Is that normal for trucks now? I can barely tell when they're on and the dealership said there's an issue with the LEDs so I can only guess what setting it is on because only one LED shows up after I press the button once which should be the high setting.

I have a '24. When I start the truck it's on low, with 1 light on. I hit it 2 more times to get to high, with 3 lights on.
 
Weird. My 22 LTD with retrofitted heated seats go High/Med/Low/Off with each push.
Same here (but 22 Refresh). One press and it goes straight to the highest setting.

On the highest setting mine get pretty hot, and will have you wanting to turn them down a click or two pretty quick. When it’s cold out, I put it on medium and can still feel it pretty warm through a medium weight jacket.

It sounds like you may have a programming issue with yours that will hopefully be solved by re-flashing the module. There are so many sensors and modules on these new trucks…the two issues I’ve had with my truck were either due to programming or a bad module. I hope your dealer is able to get it straightened out for you!
 
If you are only getting one light, even when you push the button a few times to cycle through the settings, something is not working right. My truck also starts out on setting 3 with the first button push (all three leds lit), then drops to 2, then 1, then off with successive button pushes.

However, trying to use a thermal thermometer on the seats is not going to work well - heated seats require insulation to heat. You can leave those things on for an hour, but if there's nothing in the seat, they aren't going to be very hot.
