Spent more time than I care to admit trying to do this. I found a thread on this forum with pictures that finally showed me how to do it. The problem is the coleman regulator uses a custom connection to the grill. If you don't remove the coleman regulator, you don't have enough pressure to cook.
That thread showed how to dis-assemble the coleman regulator. The threaded piece that connects to the grill will unscrew from the rest of the regulator. Be careful when you take it apart, as there is a spring and a float in there that will fall out if you aren't careful (found out the hard way). Then you can find the appropriate NPT fittings to connect the hose from the trailer to the piece you removed from the regulator.
What I did was bought a new regulator (about $30) to take apart, and kept my old one so I can still use the grill on bottles for tailgating. And of course, the obvious safety concern - without that Coleman regulator you want to be sure the grill is only connected to a low pressure feed.
I have always liked this grill, and now its even better with it connected to the tt instead of worrying about cylinders.
