You want to make sure the sail furls into the slot nice and flat. This varies a little from boat to boat, but some things that usually help are being bow-to-wind and keeping a little light tension on the outhaul as you furl the sail, much the same way you would with a furling headsail. Also on some boats it helps to tighten the vang to help flatten the sail.
After you've done it a few times you'll get a feel for it.
