The back chain is supposed to be loose because the suspension geometry tightens it when the suspension is compressed. Never adjust it unloaded. Put about 200lbs on the rear rack and then adjust the chain by turning the eccentric shaft carrier so the chain has 1/2inch total up and down movement.

AWD off in neutral is normal.
