I have brewed about 4 batches of AG full boil stove top but it is absolutely causing havoc on my burners. I am guessing the combination of weight and being on for nearly 2 hours is the cause.

Any suggestions to help weight distribution that won't hinder the boiling ability?

Right now I have a 10gallon aluminum pot that I spread over 2 burners. I was thinking of getting one of those cast iron griddles that can be placed over 2 burners to help with the weight issue but I might have too much heat loss to achieve boil.

Out door is sadly not an option for where I live.

Look into electric heating elements.

This is an electric stove, right? You might want to search for something like "canning element." It's a heavy-duty replacement element.

buy an urn. Then you can boil inside easily and transfer the wort out of the tap as well more easily than the pot you are using. Easy fix for inside or appt brewing.

Just make sure you don't have a GE stove. I was going to try a canning element on my stove and then found out GE stoves use a non-standard element connection. My lucky day!

I got home to check my stove, naturally it's a GE. Does no one make a canning element for a GE? So far my search has not been successful.
