So why do some of these kits come with relays? Doesn't seem like this would draw enough current that you couldn't just run it through a switch directly?

I ran mine directly through the switch as the current draw is minimal. The unit automatically turns off when the actuator reaches the top and bottom end points. You can also stop the movement anywhere in between those points.

The unit is mounted almost straight up and down and has no issues.

If you modify the mounting bracket's linear actuators pin hole locations, you may be able to mount the top mounting bracket on the 1x1 support that is glued to the bottom of the bed board.
