chain Tension



hi guys 

just a quick question, just checked my chain tension and its 52mm which is too slack from the manual as it says the max is 48mm. I'm going to be travelling next week with two up on the bike and all the travel gear (cooker, tent, sleeping bags etc) I'm tempted to leave the chain as it is for the weight, any suggestions
