Kingsnakes do not normally soak, unless trying to stay cool or getting relief from mites. Don't expect a kingsnake to soak on its own to shed.

A plastic container with a hole cut in it, filled with damp moss 1/2 way over/under the heat is the easiest and best way in your case to allow your snake the humidity it needs to shed the skin itself. Kings love the moist hide described.
